Poet's Notes
(Show)

A big thank you to Eve Roper for her kind generosity, gifting me Premium Membership.  It was a pleasant surprise, one that is always more special, when not expected.

Below is a painting by Eve.

Blank canvas lies naked, cold and pale. Master painter paints a dream, so a man without sight can see. Master painter's palette enchants. Sleeping grey pigments weep, flowing crimson reds drip as mellow yellows bring sparkle. Navy blues dribble with royals, as bright greens drizzle with bursts of orange bowing to sprinkles of gold. Without a word, each stroke dances flowing like the sea, where calm waves salute unblemished shores. Psychedelic impressions shape illuminations, creating images like a mother's lullaby.

It's all gorgeous, but the blind don't see it. Hopefully, the Master Painter will provide a miraculous med-tech solution that will bring sight to the blind.

the poem makes me want to reach out and touch the painting and feel the round and flat dried paint - to look at it up close - to see the specs of paint that can only be seen from up close
