Epiphany 2

΅〜 ೋღ ღೋ      〜΅

I see how different words are bestowed with a sublime radiance of varying hues of color…
Emotional gradation…

΅〜 〜΅ 

I observe my palette of words very carefully…
One mustn’t rush…

΅〜 〜΅ 

Slowly I begin to paint…first one then another…
I step back and look at the revealing of this new painting…
This creation of words blending into something wondrous…
Something hitherto unknown…
Time passes…

΅〜 〜΅

I look again…
I close my eyes…

΅〜 〜΅

I feel the tumultuous gathering…
The machinations of my senses coalescing into words…

΅〜 〜΅ 

Their birth a beautiful rendition of everything combining at once…
As if time has no meaning here…
Past, present, future collide into my Phantasmagoric Dreamscape…
Joining…rejoining…connecting…
Locking together as though they already know how they are to combine…
As if they each have their own purpose, thought, desire…
To be seen, read, understood…

΅〜 ೋღ ღೋ      〜΅

Epiphany…
Am I their painter…
Or are they mine?

  1. With much rubbing of hands I devoured this…but where to begin? Why at the beginning of course!

    That accompanying picture is ethereal to the max, the bizarre physical depth and all the accompanying beauty is truly epic and it’s easy to miss the lady in the corner but it is she, with her eyes that sees the true beauty and she is therefore the most wonderful creation within the picture.

    Words wise, it’s a veritable feast of images and ideas, the words hue and gradation mirror our Autumnal season of this world. I always find this season a tad lonely so your soliloquising to each individual reader about how you form your creations makes for a more intimate and dramatic experience of reading.

    I liked your painting image which is a lovely mirror imaging not only of the fulsome way we see your created forms in our heads but is also a nice harking back to the poem Painting With Words. The form of malleable time with which all your Dreamscape pieces exude is one of epic proportions and with the forming and changing of the words, it feels almost like a universal creation, a Big Bang of thoughts colliding at the perfect time for you to devise the best mixture of words.

    Who paints what? Is indeed the question, I think half and half will do just nicely as a compromise to begin with! xxxxx

    • In the aftermath of such an exvepic comment how ever shall I respond?? Your amazingly awesome and oh so very generous words of praise have rendered me beyond speechless for an appropriate reply. I shall do my best to thank you profusely whilst also expressing my gratitude with more than a touch of utter shock at your wondrous comment!

      Your description of this piece as seen through your eyes is truly inspiring and most definitely will be cherished for all time. You are correct in that the ‘painting’ theme does allude to the magical poem “Painting With Words”….inspiration everywhere…or so it would seem!

      I give you my most heartfelt thankfulness and gratitude for your continued encouragement and praise which unceasingly keeps pushing me to write in such a manner so as to evoke even more of same from you. I do love to surprise and share my words with you… xxxxx

  6. Hello Christina;

    How are you my sweet virtual friend…
    Wow You poem is so meaningful… A sort of ode to poetic creation…

    “Epiphany”: The song of a poet and also the artwork of painter. They both reveal new worlds, unwrapping that subtle hidden reality which lays beneath the “wordly world” …

    My favorite verses here are “As if time has no meaning here/…
    Past, present, future collide into my Phantasmagoric Dreamscape”…

    The last stanza is absolutely perfect as words and writer (poet) appear to link to both sides of the same story: the poem…

    Sending you hugs , and I hope you have a great friday and weekend ahead.

  7. Christina you write such transcendent words about the mystery of creativity and the miracle of poetry. there is no ‘time’ at the moment of pure creativity, there is being present and still and quiet, quiet enough to hear the words as they arrive.

    the Universe whispers quietly
    in syllables to those who listen.

    • Thank you so very much! Your comment read like prose to me…absolutely beautiful and very very cherished! Your insight is spot on and as well as utterly fascinating … to be still & quiet seem at such odds with our world today…but you are absolutely correct…that is exactly when they come and your gorgeous words:
      “the Universe whispers quietly
      in syllables to those who listen” ~ Oh yes…I *love* your words!!

      Could I use them? I have an idea and they would be perfect, if you don’t mind…I would also love to give you credit for them of course…if you approve…and if I may have your name my good sir? 😉
