Why I Draw With My Eyes And Heart, LOVE THY SUBJECT!

She Spoke

She spoke it in a line
Random mind awoke
She drew it with her heart
Eyes followed lines

A mouth pulled them apart
They spread in disarray
Beautiful thought
It lay
She drew it with her heart
Over and under and through
The light we could see.
A mouth pulled it apart.
Random mind awoke
The moon
Drew it the way she knew
As she smiled with me

By Maria Grujicic
Artist name, Malena

This is a poem that describes a love for the subject that one draws, of which I feel is required for the art work to be authentic and ‘real’. One needs to simply feel.

I find that as a poet it is important to me that I explore a variety of other art forms even though I am not expert at them. This is because I need to have perspective on the world around me and express these in different ways to bring out the inspiration in me.

I feel that creativity is holistic, like a picture and without other art forms my poems lack that special something. Venturing into something new is like nutrition for my poems. Disarray, it may seem though when it all comes together it forms that picture I have in my mind.

The rhythm to this poem is in my head as I recite it. I hope that this is clear as my audience reads it. I will do up an audio soon.

Comments are welcome. And as always, thank you for visiting.

    • Hi Milena! Thank you, your words give me light. I just wrote 4 new poems this morning after I saw your message. I have been a little slow writing these days … I can’t explain exactly why, but I have released the answers in my poems.
