The Love of Art
and
The Art of Love
will
ever outlive
War

The painter’s eye
that
reflects this love
will
always attract
more

The tyrant heart
that
denies this truth
won’t
ever enrich
lore

The Love of Art
and
The Art of Love
lasts
always at life’s
core

    • I’ve just looked at the outline in particular and Chris Moore in general. I enjoy a good satire so will probably try one of his works. Thanks for the intro and your comment.

    • Replacing my old for my new eh? This actually reflects what Heaney said on an old BBC Radio4 interview I heard last night – (I paraphrase) ‘when a poem is done, you’re finished with it. Put it behind you and write the next one’. Thank you.

  1. Healing word winds
    Catch your drifts
    Find your heart holds
    Enlighten shadows midst

    Paint new views
    On war torn faces
    Raise the thunder
    Of angelic graces
    ❤

    • Well Doug, that both of us blown away. How does one react to being told that his work is reminiscent of Khalil The Prophet? With what the great man himself once termed ‘trembling happiness’. Your benediction takes me personally to the next level as a poet. Thank you sincerely. [excuse the delay – I didn’t reply for 24 hours because I didn’t know how]

      • LadyBlueRose's Thoughts Into Words says:

        she bore witness
        to the art within beauty
        given in love
        with more than just a sense of duty
        words flowed from fingertips
        whispers escaped from stilled lips
        to wander in a sense of wonder
        to create thoughts to ponder
        yes, she bore witness
        and the moment passed with such swiftness
        Take Care Mike…You Matter
        Blessings
