How time grows quiet and immensely spent When a dab of mixed hues ignite the embers, That hands dip into oils, a livid intent As brushes splash the grass and wildflowers While etching a landscape of trees on bowers, Contoured forms intoxicate down the spine… Where words are but mute from a view quite fine. Shapes become fuller on an easel’s rail, O birth on canvas fills my soul’s passion Until resplendent images unveil : This palette of eyes wet with impression Comes from life’s need to quench true obsession; For Art’s desire I cannot leave behind Enticing new paintings that flame my mind. ~ Contest for Silent One’s Obsession Double Rhyme Royal 7/23/2017 Checked via

a very beautiful rhyme royal and I am reading it after seeing a fantastic movie about a folk artist named Maude who lived in Nova Scotia and died around 1970. What an awesome movie it was. What an awesome poem this is.

Put passion into your art and you have a wonderful painting, when mixed with obsession then you have a masterpiece, like this poem of yours Nette. Good luck in the contest, though I hardly think you need it...Maria
