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.

      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.

      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
