Terence G. Craddock (afterglows echoes of starlight)

Critic Word Paste Horizons

descend fade to dim critic word paste horizons
art conceived art discussed are now emotionally
planes apart different creations prodigy births

cannot have the same value to artist and critic
observe critic spokesperson mouthpiece smiling
wants artist to imitate expressionism or cubism

sonnet haiku ballad epic other forms because...
whatever Petrarch Shakespeare unique created
their own personal sonnet forms to their rules

Picasso conceived discarded styles like prostitutes
change clothing acquire costumes personalities
whatever suitable persona mask evolves is style

quite the fashion rage for imitators lacking own soul...
perceptions personalities rarely will genius tolerate
long production of copies when own irregular thoughts

drum beat demand scream to be recorded produced...

poet Sarah Flower Adams

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;

That out of dust created man,
