L. B. Mek

A presentism legacy, of Artistry

 

history

records our assumed, facts

that novels 

embellish with their fiction,

 

music 

dances between our pulsating, boundaries 

giving platform

to a generation’s volition,

 

paintings and sculptures

encapsulate our wondrous, achievements

and failures

with their innate imagination's, mirroring canvas of wonder's;

 

but nothing - frames

those subtle – monumental, transcendentally

ineffable    

eruptions of our quintessential, emotions

like a few acutely woven words, inked

with that inspiringly – penetrative, ingenuity 

sprouting, from a Poet’s

presentiment-vulnerability: of visionary veracity…

    just gorgeous L.B
    you do raise a thought once i went to an island called levanzo in sicilly we went to visit a cave and it had ancient drawings of people and mamoths but i couldn't help but think if it was really real? or sis someone created very cleverly to claim many tourists who pay to see it? i am some what sceptical sometimes, my family always laugh at me but i don't know.

    • L. B. Mek

      I too, swim in those sceptical sea's
      it helps to balance out my imagination's
      somewhat self-centred, tendencies
      I feel.. lol
      thank you, I was worried this would read too 'wordy'
      so your 'gorgeous' has made my day - already, 😌

      "dances between our pulsating, boundaries" what a line that is LB.
      Life be it visual or emotional,is a "merry dance" we all do,be it music,painting,poetry.I have read or looked at "something" which is either amazing,or had me scratching my head.

      • L. B. Mek

        'at "something" which is either amazing,
        or had me scratching my head.'
        kinda fun, when something tugs at us
        on a level we can't quite, ascertain
        yet, can be certain
        of its meaningful importance, and so
        we simply contemplate and ponder
        thereby unknowingly entering, poetry's
        most sacred quality: of intuitive mysticism..
        thank you for your insightful comment, dear Poet
        so glad you enjoyed the read

            maybe I kinda tipped the scales

              Wonderful words Mek and so very true. Words can bring all emotions to us all. In my case music can do this as well.

                yes, I was definitely - most ashamedly
                playing favourites, in this write Andy..
                all Art is infused
                with its own unique blend of emotionality
                I totally agree,
                thank you my friend

              • Poetic Dan

                Words of wonder I'll gladly look at every day, it left like I was lost at sea but every was okay.

                  knowing how busy you are, I'm especially grateful
                  that you prioritised your precious free time
                  to write such an encouraging comment
                  always appreciated, my friend

                • SureshG

                  A license for sure, whether poetic or literary, but that’s what gives our imagination the freedom to exploit, but one has to have the gift as yours to pen an amazing piece.

                  • L. B. Mek

                    or the visionary insight of a poet, like you
                    to take mere scribbled words and view them
                    for their more meaningful - potential...
                    thank you for such an encouraging and illuminating comment
                    how very kind, sincerely
