Dear Division 16,
When we had our visit from Sam on Tuesday this week, I really enjoyed the spirited mini-debate that occurred in the presentation about whether words (writing) or images (visual art) were more free, or more capable of sparking imagination.
Since April is Poetry month and Cheiree has had us thinking this week about carrying poems in our pockets, let’s think more about that.
For your post today, please consider the following quote:
“Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.”
– Leonardo da Vinci
In your post, please post a poem that you personally enjoy. Remember that you must give credit to the author, as always, and then comment on whether you agree with the quote above and why.
Here is my poem:
You tell me that silence
is nearer to peace than poems
but if for my gift
I brought you silence
(for I know silence)
you would say
this is not silence
this is another poem
and you would hand it back to me
