A Poet and a Painter

The painter painted  …


As a poet walked along the seashore,

he admired the rolling waves

and how the sun reflected upon the water.

The poet came upon a painter,

who was staring out to sea.

He said to him,

how great it would be –

to paint what I see.

The painter answered –

you and I are very alike.

You paint with your words

and I with my hands.

The poet very much surprised

and sat down beside him.

Then the painter told him to speak.

The poet spoke of sunrises and sunsets.

He spoke of rolling seas and majestic mountains,

and of the wonder of nature.

The painter painted,

inspired by the poetic words.

When the afternoon was done,

the painter put his brush down.

Then the poet saw, that his words

had turned to color.

He saw a mountain, the sun shining upon the sea

and the sky a brilliant blue

and in awe and amazement,

he thanked the painter,

for he had shown him how alike they were.

When inspired the poet painted a picture with words

and the painter with colors upon an easel.

They shook hands

for the partnership they had found

and the friendship they had gained.

    Artistic expression is akin to all creative thought and indeed we all relate to all the arts in purpose and intention. Nicely penned Rasma. Cheers!
