flame rose

Posted on Updated on

paint, if you must
golden hills and silvery coasts
melody of unsung songs
traces of unfound shores
fill this void, keep me afloat
paint all that echoes
in your resplendent soul

…..

an ode to a painter, art by Thomas Saliot : http://www.thomassaliot.com

      haha thanks Charly, though it wasn’t for this painter Saliot 😛 it was a painter of words who said ‘he is trying to paint the sound of the Universe using only his words’ .. and hence my reply 🙂

        See, I told you I never know what you poets are talking about. I should be smarter, any recommendations?

          ahh thats going to be a tough one, Charly, poets are a lil insane 😀 and when it comes to reading, it all depends on what you like. I started out with Rumi and then explored the work of other poets such as Gibran, Tagore, DreamingBear, Cummings, Neruda, Hafiz and now I do enjoy a novel or two by writers such as Osho, Albert Camus, Herman Hesse, Bukowski, Thoreau etc. I just listed all the writers I can see on my book shelf at the moment 😛 you can try and see what you enjoy the best?
