a thought picked up


if edward hopper found

that painting exists

due to the impossibility

of words saying all

I am glad he chose to

express himself with his


for the poet in me

word-expressions will be

a permanent challenge

that may bring out shades

of feelings

I will depict in drawing/

painting/ or mixed-media


well now/ the poet has

worked from his early teens

on his poetry

with recognition from his


stimulated by his young

sensuous muse

he felt indeed that words

failed him to express his

feelings and he drew/

painted/ searching for

his personal style

while mom lauded his

artistic efforts.

from Johannesburg to

athens his muse anna

furthered his literary


between two poles of

expression now

he wanders about

perhaps it’s all poetry.
