Writing Challenge #6

I just got back into computer land today, so pardon the lack of a non photo project - I didn't have much time this week to be creative.


Your Inspiration



Go where your mind takes you!

I can only give credit for this to Hal.... If it sucks, that wasn't the intention, of course. *grins* For a writer of prose, this thread seems to inspire anything but.

Whose Eye?

What is art?
Like beauty
is it in the eye
of the beholder?
Or is it in the eye
of the creator?

Standing
at the cusp
of creation,
does the artist
create for himself
or for the viewer?

Perhaps
the key
is in how
the canvas
feels
about its burden.

What is art?
It is a feeling,
a sense
that there is more
to what you see
with the naked eye.

An inconsequential interpreter of life
The inspiration abounds in all he sees
The peacefulness of the ocean
The chaos of the inner mind
They come together in canvas and color
Each revealing a small part
Of an inconsequential interpreter
He is
An artist

This is my first time to try this out, so here it goes:

There I was, on the beach seeing a silloutte painting a frame and a stand around real life. Next to him sat framed artwork that he probably painted previously. I stumbled towards him and put my arm through the frame crashing into the sand. The silloutte looked down at me and said "Stop snorting the sand your messing up my work."

There can be no Blank canvas
In my mind
All things form upon the tip of these fine hairs
Blanket the wind in misted clouds
Of sand
And take that which is Subject to heart
I will use this scene to make myself
Complete again
I am but the artist, Not as real as the Art

How many times have you seen something that would make a perfect picture but you, being the inartistic soul that you are, are unable to represent the scene with any form of justice and so you continue on in life; A little sadder than you were moments before? Cry for joy and not for the sadness that beauty brings. Whether or not you are able to represent beauty with any form of accuracy you owe it to the universe and your own beautiful aritistic soul to try. Try.

Selling yourself a bit short there, amonkie. I just reread your "Sweet Dreams" poem and it was fantastic.

Slightly disjointed but here goes..

So there is a man that confines himself to staying "inside the box"... It doesn't bother him. He can see the wonders of the outside world, but he feels safer inside.. This "box" is his window... and he's content to observe the beauty all around.

I decide to capture the world of my eye
Set up my supplies, poised brush ready
As the strokes go, the world I see
doesn't seem to be what I paint
Instead I see a blue wave of halls
Memories sparked unconsciously
Again I begin, this time determined
Yet again, the end does not match outside
Every time, the scenery doesn't change
But the eye of the brush sweeps along
a different picture in mind

follower of the child's crusade?
 
pile of dead water, washing this way and that
Frightening and empty, a dead man's hand
A stilted perception, a stunted paint brush
Hollow, the opposite of life, superimposed
Over a wall of death, leads one to the conclusion
That the weather must turn, one of these days
Before the ordinary rain comes, and the
Summer tension subsides for a while.
The seas always gives up its dead, oh
Thats what they say, or, so they say
Little fishes, little fishes
Still have sharp teeth
Your just made of metal
I turn you at angles
To look at what you see
But you dont have eyes
And you dont mean anything
Youre just fucking dead
You were never alive.

this is my soul
painting a picture of non-existance
catching every eb and flow of a life that will never exist
creating a world from a memory
creating a world that is picture perfect

Ebony strokes forming finite demands...
Suppressing the wild things that roar to be free.

beautiful winter day
my feet in the snow
snow covered beach
capturing
what i can
from this day

i can tell by my shadow
that i'm real
the sun is shining on me

at times i'm not sure i'm real
just don't feel particularly valued

but how many people
bother
to capture
the perfect day
like this
or just don't pay attention to it

car ads
call for drivers
not passengers in life
bunch of people in action
they want

i guess
all looking for attention
but everyone too active
to notice each other

i see you
i see them
you won't be forgotten

extend me the same courtesy
on this day

Emptiness inside me echoes with the crash of waves
Cold aloofness in the face of beauty
Brush strokes continue without my volition
My eyes caress all I have created
I see the beauty that others admire
Could these splashes of color and life
Have come from inside such empty coldness?
Hope inspired; continue to paint
Seeing proof that though I can not envision
I am more than two dimensions after all

The canvas begins blank
Parent’s hands add the first traces
The masterpiece gains form

First thoughts, experiences, and sights
Are mirrored on the canvas’s surface
The masterpiece gains depth

Outside hands connect the lines
Eyes now peer back at those looking in
The masterpiece gains identity

The true artist’s hand emerges
Skillfully, the portrait is at last finished
The masterpiece gains definition

Colors fade and lines blur
But spectators have never given more notice
The masterpiece gains a place in history
