Just messing around here, but . . a wordless poem ?
So I thought about this for a day or so. Let's see ;" a poem is a form of
literary art in which "language" is used for its aesthetic and evocative
qualities." I like that word "evocative" too . .(tending to bring forth, as an
emotional response, . .tears, etc.)
Now I know that your poem was named "Wordless", and that you didn't
mean a wordless poem. But I started to go off on a tangent here, and
thought about doing a wordless poem. Would it even be possible ? And if
someone came up with a wordless poem, how would we know who wrote
Then I started thinking about signs, and pictures, and DNA. You know, the
picture of an eye for "I", a heart to represent love, and so on. Maybe if it
was done in blood, no words just symbols, how far could we take it ? At
least the blood would give us a signature . .without words.
And then I said, you fool, you knave,
recognition need not be craved,
poems are words and words are doors,
wordless poems abound . . for sure,
in paintings here . . and sketches there,
wordless poems are everywhere.
