Runaway Blues

5 May

Pansy by Jonathan Gill on Flickr – Photo Sharing!

Against the backdrop of a rainy day
vibrant colors pierce the gloom
escape petals and hum
electrifying moist air
only to be recaptured
imprisoned on canvas
by an artist’s eye

    cool picture! Looks like an electric pansy 🙂 I love the concept of the colors escaping and then being captured in another sense!

    Thanks for the feedback everyone. I wrote the poem first and decided to do a Creative Commons image search on Pansy, because their colors are so brilliant. When I saw Jonathan Gill’s “Pansy” it took my breath away. The perfect image of what I was imagining.

    beautiful and poetic how you caught the movement and life of an everyday flower breathing, living, existing in plain sight… and the foto is indeed vibrant!!!

    Lovely. The superb image is joined by stunning words.

    This portrays the artist as somewhat of a hunter, grasping and harnessing artistic opportunities lest they disappear into the void.

    This is really well done Nara!

    a perfect marriage.
