Not Too Different
(the poet to the painter)

As the painter uses brushes
to paint.
I use my pens and pencils to
write.

As the painter paints with
color.
I paint with words of
imagery.

As the painter doesn't use
words.
I don't use shapes and
pictures.

But don't think we're not
alike.
Because in reality, we're not
too different.

We both compose art, in a
way.
And it comes from our heart.

Our images can both be seen.
Just in their different ways.

The painter can paint what I
write.
I can write what the painter
paints.

So, you see, the painter and
me,
Are not too different after
all.

This is just how a friend and I were describing poetry the other day, Lynn. And this poem says it all - very well done.

Lynn,
I believe without either, the world would suffer greatly!

Well, that is basically how I describe poetry to the few friends that I can seriously discuss my art with. (Your words were much more eloquent) Nice work.

I too, agree with your analogy Lynn.
Wonderful piece!
