What’s Seen and Read?

A picture can say and mean many things. In the eye of the creator the picture has a definite meaning and is saying something specific.

Words that come together as poetry or prose can mean and say many things. In the hand or mind of the creator, the words have a definite meaning and is saying something specific.

Pictures and words on a canvas or page can and will say many different things to the reader or the viewer. They are suppose to bring them, the viewer and reader to their own conclusions based upon their understanding and experiences. No two people understand and experience quite the same.

It is all in the eyes of the beholder. This is good. The reader and the viewer get to have their own creative process take place from the impetus of the pictures they view and the words they read.

More Than the Old

The Keyshia Cole moments have past changing lanes speed decreased to Luther Vandross.

Sometimes love and it’s remembered moments pass as quickly as the mood changes the radio tune.

Missy Elliott thumping windows shaking “Let[ting] it Go” keeping it real unzipped.

Mary J Blige still “Just Fine” like me doing mine, doin me feeling free to be me.

I’m more than the old songs, more than the memories creating new tunes poetic words shaking away the chaff and keeping what’s good.

Those Idle Thoughts

(Writing Challenge #2, post 3)

The mind’s ability is wasted by the idle thoughts that bear no fruit. Thoughts that keep people awake at night about things they could have changed during the day. These thoughts have no benefit just like rocking in a rocking chair that is going nowhere.
