A Painters Eye
Louis Gibbs said:

Could also apply to the poet\'s eye, would you say? If our muse isn\'t available, as a last resort we compose consciously. Wonderful poem, WL!

Bill you\'ve really summed it up. I find the more you paint the more you do instinctively like light direction, composition, weight, palette etc and if, as you say, all else fails you have to consciously take stock and actually think.

Great write in a subject that happens so often. We, instead of value things we have we take it for granted and leave. Sad but true.

Great, great poem, WL! And the painting fits it so well!
Your whole poem is just outstanding, and love that last stanza. While life IS wonderful, it certainly is very fragile.

A very realistic painting and poem of the lives of animals in the wilderness. Thanks for sharing WL.

What misfortune goes unseen in the animal kingdom. Floods, lightning strikes, fire, even hunger and being wild help is scant and often non-existent. You handled this natural calamity very well indeed. I enjoyed the read. Nice write. Joe

FredPeyer said:

This is a great poem, WL. A lot of animals instinctively know when something is up and take off in time, but there are always some that get trapped. It is a tragedy. You captured the mood perfectly. And the painting reflects that mood as well. Both well done!

WL Schuett said:

While it\'s true it is a great experience to play music on an instrument that you made
Nobody would ever really accuse us of being harmonious lol but it\'s fun , my cat comes in after I\'m done practicing...

Goldfinch60 said:

Super write, making music together is wonderful and must be all the better playing on an instrument that you have made. Good friend, good music played in harmony what more could one ask for.
Beautiful guitar - does the cat play?

Friendship and music goes together so good. Beautiful writing with a lot of fun for the reader. Tomorrow is Saturday and I\'m going to meet old friends and music is going to be part of that. Friends and music inseparables.

Loved this poem, Bill. I grew up with a relative who played guitar and I find it so soothing. A bit of nostalgia for me. I\'m glad that you have something that brings you so much joy! Thank so much for sharing this! Nice guitar by the way!

FredPeyer said:

WL, you captured the mood perfectly! There are very few things in life that are better than a lasting friendship and music.
And the guitar is amazing! Are these wood-inlays on the side? And the way you adorned the sound hole with the three rings is gorgeous! What kind of wood did you use? I heard of a guitar maker who buys curly Koa-wood from Hawaii.

That guitar is a unique beauty, WL, as is this fine tribute to a lasting friendship! As an old four-string guitar player, I can relate.

What a wonderful write!
\"where the river collides with the sky\" is a superb line.
I was with you going down that river.

The painting is sublime.

Beautiful writing WL, great choice of words, great rhyming, this poem put me into a different realm. One of peace and quietness. I could hear the slight splash of the paddles, experienced the night landscape, and just reading it felt at peace. Seriously, no kidding!
