Art

courtesy: Bjorn Rudberg

I chisel to create you

Offspring you are

Of my soul

You are my desire

My passion

My joy

My refuge

My existence

I will live

With you

Here

Forever

  1. Ah.. the reindeer people
    of North perhaps the
    first domesticated
    herd animal
    of all..
    such a part
    of life.. a
    power
    animal
    that is
    life for
    human then..:)

  2. I think yes.. that is why we create.. art is our whole existence.. it's our sustenance and blood.

  3. 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.

  4. Indeed, a piece of art or carving is part of the person's soul. It represents his inner thoughts and passion. Powerful write :D

    Lots of love,

  5. I particularly love this part Sumana:

    Offspring you are
    Of my soul

    Art will live long after us ~

  6. 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.'

  9. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. Artists certainly feel this way about their creations! Lovely piece!
