PAINTING AND POETRY #poetry by jay

Dabbing and jabbing

colorful words grabbing

the canvas

conceiving

relieving

my creativity reliving

the experiences

of my life

dropping

hitting the paper

not stopping

mixing and blending

intensity

sending

messages

retrieving

memories pretending

too vast

fast

slipping into the past

never too late

hit the page

in great feverish debate

depicting

pictorial landscapes

to date

poetry, painting

swirling

slanting

dream catching

panting

utterly entrancing

dancing

upon the plate

glass-

scraping

screeching

brush rotating

sweeping

great strokes

of colorful words

straightening

the canvas

stretching

reaching

for thoughts

escaping

then enlightening

words soaring

heightening the fury

circling the canvas

completing

but,

never leaving.

This poem expresses the feelings and thoughts I often experience while I am in the creative process of painting, or writing poetry.

This painting I did was sold at an auction to benefit a coworker who was diagnosed with breast cancer.

It is called, “Abstract Divide” ,  oil on canvas.  Since then, the friend is doing wonderful, is happily married and has a little boy.

  1. Awesome! Both the painting and poem. The fast-pace of the poem was great and all the internal, quick rhymes. Almost reminded me of hip-hop!

    1. Thanks Matt! 🙋🏻‍♂️ LoL, well that would be quite the show, I know several artist friends into performance painting. It is a unique concept but I am not really a performer in that way. If you come up with some music, that sounds great , hit me up with the credit, with what you produce and no problemo!
