The Painter: A Poem


The painter sees with her mind,

And feels with gentle brushstrokes,

To create images of feeling,

That evoke a response,

From businessmen and homeless men alike,

Like a smile, art is a universal language,

We discover with our eyes,

As colors form objects, people, or emotions,

And come alive without words or sound.

I'm sure all artists will relate to this. We all indeed see with our mind, and the world calls us mad. Thank you for this lovely piece.
