Of Creating A World With A Word

I painted a picture…
I created a world with a word…
I made sense from nonsense,
I used intense sense to change tense,
Tension became intention
and the intent turned win into ‘one‘ like water into wine and next came the text
pen makes love to paper,
Everything has an agenda,
Paper becomes pregnant and gives birth to words without gender;
the words become hungry and are fed with metaphors.
I sketched a beautiful world with the pencil of imagination,
I gazed in admiration,
at this imagined nation,
So I painted a picture,
I created a world with a word…
And I called it poetry.

      1. Thank you JeNom
        Hadn’t even realized adding the recording would have such an effect, I simply did it cause Ib loved the sound of the wordplay πŸ˜‚

    1. Haha one can now do this… you simply add an audio block (similar to how you posted the video except I uploaded a recording haha )
      This is one of those things I have always wanted to try out because some posts are meant to be read out loud..

      1. That’s so cool, and yes, it was great to hear it being read! I LOVE these blocks as it’s working great with my videos. I’m glad you tried it, as it’s inspiring and fun! πŸ˜„

      2. Oh that makes me feel better as I was very nervous sharing my first video. But I share on FB all the time but that’s such a small group compared to who “might” see and hear it here on this platform. Go for it, you sounded amazing. The perfect read I think! πŸ˜‰πŸ˜

      1. I swear that was impressive. Writing is funny; you can’t fake it. It is there or it isn’t, and some times we got it than other times. I think it’s safe to say you roared through it this time. Maybe it was a dose of that coffee you write about πŸ™‚

  1. This is beautiful! Does anyone else get reminded of the nebula or galaxy when seeing the white spots of paint on the hand like stars distributed in the space? 🀩❀

    1. Thank you…
      After I had finished painting the paint spots on my hands reminded me of a galaxy of stars which is how I came upon the idea of painting a world with words…

  3. Beautiful! You are a master with words. The idea of recording it is an added bonus and it’s interesting to have a voice to go with the face. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Thank you Nancy
      When I wrote it, I knew it was meant to be read otherwise one might miss the full experience of the word play especially being very short one might just rush through without feeling it….
      I might do this more😍

  4. That was awesome!
    I like the subtle melody in the background. It works well with the word.
    “the words become hungry and are fed with metaphors.” that was my favorite line.
    I like how this piece is poetic, funny, and smart.
