A Romantic Heart
Forever In Your Heart
To me poetry is an art, just like singing, dancing, painting, etc. All are created from self expression, therefore having a soul.Some are born naturally with a gift for these talents.
Steven King words: "I believe you can make a good writer better,(to enhance what is already there) but I don't believe you can take just anyone and send them to writing school and they become a writer, it all starts with a passion and desire.Either you have it or you don't.
Who is to say or judge that one abstract painting is better than a Bob Ross oil painting...to me they are all beautiful because they represent the creators heart. Each person is giving and displaying an intimate part of them for you to see. How can one expression be better or more perfect than the other....each piece is created with a soul. Therefore to me, we would be judging eachothers soul.
I could do poetry about a tree, and have all the grammer , t's and i's doted etc. If the poem is dead...no feeling or soul..what is the purpose? To me it would not be unique, just like reading a newspaper...
To me it is like a human without a soul, no heart. I do believe in learning and being better at what you desire to do.
I have heard singers just sing...and then I have listened to ones that made me cry...pulled my heart out. To me that is the difference, that is the passion, the soul, that is when it becomes more than words...You walk away changed, inspired,feeling and seeing the world differently. It affects you and leaves its mark...that is the magic.
To me there is not a certain formula to follow, then we would all be like the Stepford Wives..robots...diversity is what makes us different, unique.
As an artist, I would prefer to paint with a variety of one hundred colors..instead of using just eight...it makes the painting more real, alive and colorful...just as we as individuals make and create the world to be more colorful.Each bringing something different to the table of life..
Art is words expressed though paintings..etc.
Dancing is expression of words through body language.
Movies/film...words put into motion to allow you to see and feel the story being told.
Singing is poetry in motion...words put to rhythm....
Writing is words put together to tell a story...
Poetry is passionate words put together in a rhythm....To express the heart and deep thoughts.
To me all of the gifts of the arts go hand in hand..they are are born and created by emotion, feeling, desire and passion.If not, it is all dead......words with no purpose or meaning. To me words are the most powerful tool in the universe...they can destroy, divide,encourage and inspire.
After all,God created them...he knew how powerful they are...in the bible, it states that his word is sharper than a two edged sword...cutting the heart like a knife.
Open your eyes, open your mind, open your heart, let me come in and show you love.....~ARH
