IF PICTURES ARE WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS: Poem

Updated on August 9, 2012
Source

If pictures are worth a thousand words,

And these words are wrote by choices,

Could our choices be left unheard?

Of pictures without the voices;

.........................................................

When you think about the action heard,

Like dancers performing on a stage,

Does music embrace their every turn?

Or is it lost upon the dull page.

No images there to catch your eyes,

No colors for you to see their dress,

Just a simple phrase to memorize,

While you think about all the rest,

.........................................................

Not a picture or a word can be,

Without a proper display of thought,

The mind tells the eyes what they will see,

Words worth picturing cannot be taught.

      Indeed words worth picturing cannot be taught. They come from within, from the spirit. You have written another lovely poem for us. I enjoyed it very much. Hyph

      Very beautiful hub. I believe that pictures may be worth many words, yet a beautiful poem filled with descriptive and colorful words, may paint an equally beautiful picture in a reader's mind. Thanks for your nice work.
