Seek Oak's Myth

fine fine find on the Internet ... God knows how. Peace from the Kingdom of Unity

Quote: "One of the foremost tasks of art has always been the creation of a demand which could only be satisfied later" [if you can place it!!!]


Somehow the poem by David Whyte reminded me of a quote by Rumi:

"Oh soul, you worry too much. You have seen your own strength. You have seen your own beauty. You have seen your golden wings. Of anything less, why do you worry? You are in truth the soul, of the soul, of the soul."

Sometimes I think I'm weird making connections like that. :)

Michael Pokocky

"I’ve chosen to speak with words, much like a artist speaks with paint; What I have to say is nobody ever says when they see a beautiful painting or hear a beautiful song,"That’s beautiful. What does it mean?" I hope to draw attention to writing by getting people to listen or look at it as art without asking what it means. This changes the whole dynamic of the writer as artist in the public’s mind; and through, “listening to the writing,” one might simply find the beauty. The whole net is words and words will always be around; however I believe words are an art as well; that’s why we refer to the literary masterpiece."
