I see your painting
and raise you poetry
Centuries of painting
Poetry is older
unifying the senses…
subject to the laws
of texture and
to the laws of caress.
Homer was only much later matched by…
And Plato famously transcribed Socrates…
However the Catholic Church burnt all of Sappho’s poetry…
“Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt,
and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen,” said
Leonardo da Vinci when he was working,
and writing poetry.
Imagine da Vinci
the two (and many more) mediums
every single day
gathering them infinitely
like seeds in a very pomegranate.
