Sculpture, Paint, or Poet’s Page


Open one eye to a creative blaze

to float with spirits outside with the trees

to weave some twilight through the tender leaves

so this will continue rummage in phrase.

When once I taught the Orbit of the Stars

let singing of knowledge ring through the world

the light of new ideas shiny and pearled

where books are fond acquaintances of ours.

This mysterious potency brings joy

the nature of my creativity

to walk among roaring Loom of Ages.

When truly story is about a boy

embraces natural proclivity

to sculpture, to paint, or fill poet’s pages.


Rise as a student whose bathed in dismay

eternally to and fro as if birth

a constant struggle to determine worth

is this the act where boy makes deal in clay.

I preach, being known to preach around here,

upon the flood of this creative wave

that through these words someone will spot my cave

where smoke signals have been sent in fear.

What you don’t feel will not express in art

with clocks heart the soul will then understand

with new emotions let my readers see.

A boyhood weakness seems a place to start

the boy creates in dreams foggy yet grand

and sails imagination out to sea.


The tragedy of a life dismantled

and joy of piecing it back together

the boy, now old, is currently father

whose art and children fondly entangled.

Let sharing of knowledge spread through world

“To see that for all the science and art

we truly know nothing it burns my heart”

the light of new ideas shiny and pearled.

A compelling argument for this heart

to save our culinary disaster

starting a fire from a pile of ashes.

What you don’t feel will not express in art

the joy of piecing art back together

to sculpture, paint, or fill poet’s pages.

    Nicely phrased piece, Jamie. To see the boy grow up and put his creativity out there for all to enjoy. Well done.

    Beautiful poetry, Jamie. I enjoyed reading it very much. Thank you so much for sharing.
    These lines are so moving and profound: “What you don’t feel will not express in art… sculpture, paint, or fill poet’s pages.”
    Art is a manifestation of emotion, and emotion speaks a language that all may understand. — W. Somerset Maugham

    Keep up the awesomeness and have a fabulous week ahead.

    Blessings to you!!
