This photo is a sneak piece of my submission~ In the book it blurred out a bit & this is also created before I new anything about photoshop, so I can see a vast improvement in my digital art skills, since I submitted this piece~

In celebration of "sharing words day." I wanted to share one of my favorite poems. I have posted it many times on my blog. I could read it a million times over and never tire of it. The words remind me of my beautiful friend that I miss emmensly~
When we two parted In silence and tears, Half broken-hearted To sever for years, Pale grew thy cheek and cold, Colder thy kiss; Truly that hour foretold Sorrow to this.
The dew of the morning Sunk chill on my brow It felt like the warning Of what I feel now. Thy vows are all broken, And light is thy fame; I hear thy name spoken, And share in its shame.
They name thee before me, A knell to mine ear; A shudder comes o'er me Why wert thou so dear? They know not I knew thee, Who knew thee too well Long, long shall I rue thee, To deeply to tell.
In secret we met In silence I grieve, That thy heart could forget, Thy spirit deceive. If I should meet thee After long years, How should I greet thee? With silence and tears. ~Lord Byron
The idea: We have words that touch us, move into our hearts and resonate, creating a feeling, taking us some place- past, present, future- perhaps some place we have never been and may never go, but for whatever reasons, the words pulse in our blood. Meeting new words, new poets, new poems, new ways for my heart to beat, is an intruiging concept. Want to go on this adventure with me? It will be easy to travel along.
Many of us already do this sharing; this idea is just to help us find each other and hear the words we have to share.
The Date: Wednesday, November 19.
The Plan: on your blog, post a poem that moves inside you, touches you, reaches you. (quotes and song lyrics welcome). Include the author (or composer or musician) and source (book, album)- perhaps also the amazon link if there is one. no explanation required, no other revelation necessary.
One last thing- Perhaps add an image. a photo. a video. a painting. a collage., if you would.
I'll create a typepad page with the links, so others can hear the rhythm of the words, see the image and share in the experience.
The Request: If you are intrigued enough, post on your blog about this Day of Sharing Words- encourage your friends to post. Who couldn't use a few new poems in their treasury or new songs in their hearts?
Once again, the masters' art is up for sale again~ oh my! what a selection of wonderous treasures he has for sale this year~ I am eyeing the piece "full fathom five" be sure to keep clicking on the photos to see different views of all the pieces.
Full fathom five thy father lies; Of his bones are coral made; Those are pearls that were his eyes; Nothing of him that does fade, But doth suffer a sea-change Into something rich and strange. Sea-nymphs hourly ring his knell: Ding-dong, Hark! Now I hear them – Ding-dong, bell.
