Dancing Of Sounds - Poem by Dejan Stojanovic

There is a moonlight note
In the Moonlight Sonata;
There is a thunder note
In an angry sky.

Sound unbound by nature
Becomes bounded by art.
There is no competition of sounds
Between a nightingale and a violin.

Nature rewards and punishes
By offering unpredictable ways;
Art is apotheosis;
Often, the complaint of beauty.

Nature is an outcry,
Unpolished truth;
The art—a euphemism—
Tamed wilderness.

    Sound unbound by nature
    Becomes bounded by art........It's called wisdom. Universal truth for all age of beyond ages. Unique utterance.

    Nature is an outcry,
    Unpolished truth;
    The art—a euphemism—
    Tamed wilderness............profound lines, tamed wilderness, beauty in rusticity, congrats on poem of the day.

    Art in general is apotheosis, elevated to a status of god and worshiped by many. Being an artist myself, i definitely thrive by the arts. And i also agree that art can be blunt and shocking but it's mostly enjoyable..........10 (Report)Reply
