Treasure Island

Howard Johnson

(7 22 62 / provo)


Through the window
All that could be seen
Is in obsucerity

Her hand parting away the mist
Strongly drivin
By wishful fulfilment
In the pursuit of color perfection

Her creative mind never rest
In expressive creativity
In its best

Perement memories
Are being made

Some people wonder
Some people ask
What motivates her
To the task
The attraction is
To be the best.

From the strength
Her love for art is strong

A driving force in the chore
Giving us to see a little more.

There is nothing
She cannot conquer
Even paints inside
A vacant mind
With colors and hues
Peaceful views.

    A very color picture you have portrayed in this well penned and poignant poem. I fully agree with you and many other fellow poets: CREATIVITY is the very foundation of Art, whether is painting, writing, singing, dancing, sculpture or poetry! The more creative you become through time, the better impact you will have on people as an artist! A very nice description of an artist! Thank for shading! 10+++Keep inspiring the World with your creative works! Love and Peace for always! Romeo from New York... (Report) Reply

poet Walt Whitman

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
