I am the salient
Set against a backdrop of shadows
I am fast, I am slow
I march on and scenes change
I watch everything shift and grow
Earth freezes then melts in seasons
Pale blue hues gently kiss a sleeping morning sky
By afternoon the seas lap up the excess
Pastels sing a lullaby no ear hears from that high
Time remains still
Its just a gift like a painting on a wall
To enjoy while it does nothing at all
Choose ONE title ONLY and write a painterly poem – in other words, paint us a picture that you imagine fits the title.
Suggestions: Write as artist or observer of an abstract, surrealism or realism. Include texture and colour & engage with the visuals in mood
A definite challenge. I wrote the poem before I quite understood the directions, and then thought maybe it fit. We all say ‘time flies’. Perhaps it us, and time doesn’t move at all.
