any picture comes to my mind,
i try to give it a body of words,
love to sit on other blooms,
for honey, color, fragrance........
Ah.. the reindeer peopleof North perhaps thefirst domesticatedherd animal of all..such a part of life.. a poweranimalthat islife forhuman then..:)
Awesome creation, Sumana.
I think yes.. that is why we create.. art is our whole existence.. it's our sustenance and blood.
I read a wonderful book about the reindeer herders, the Sumi people in Scandinavia, and they do indeed feel this passion for their animals and follow them across borders. You capture that so well and so succinctly.
Indeed, a piece of art or carving is part of the person's soul. It represents his inner thoughts and passion. Powerful write :DLots of love,Sanaa
I particularly love this part Sumana:Offspring you areOf my soul Art will live long after us ~
Your poem has expressed the joy of creation. I wonder if early man looked at his works with joy in the same way that artists do today, or if they even realized they were 'art.'
What a wonderful assertion. It melts the yearnings of a loved one Sumana!Hank
I love the way you've tackled this prompt, very different, very effective.
The joy of creation, the identification of an animal with ones soul - this truly makes me wonder about these people of before and wish I could know more of them. If they didn't think of it as art but of documentation, like we take photographs, it still amazes me the care they took, the forms. Your poem so wonderfully gets inside that creative joy.
What a heartfelt write! Thank you for sharing.
The brevity you've employed i exquisite...a beautiful artful approach, Sumana, I enjoyed this!
I agree with Grace. This is lovely "Offspring you areOf my soul"
Like Mary, I wonder if there were any stone age musings about Art, or perhaps just a drive, a need, to record the goings on. I think this glyph is of a moose, but that might just be me.
I like it forever!
Artists certainly feel this way about their creations! Lovely piece!
This is beautifully penned.
Thank you for stopping by and sharing your valuable thoughts.........
