Poem Of The Week - Muse, Art, Music and Poetry

This week's Monday prompt "Muse, Art, Music and Poetry" had many wonderful submissions from many creative writers in Jingle Poetry .Each one has their own creative input for the given prompt .Among so many wonderful poems,I have selected a poem by Kiera O’Brien " They are  Two" for the Poem of the Week today. 

She elegantly brings three arts into her poem with a starting sentence of "They are Two ".It reminds me that Two hands are needed to clap and produce a sound.Likewise ,for every arts be it a music or painting ,there are two elements with one relating and supporting another .Finally she concludes that thought they are two ,the listening and appreciating heart is only one.Its a lovely take on the prompt and I enjoyed it.Hope you like it too.

They are two…

Beautiful performers, each in front of an audience:
A vixen whose tongue is as fiery as her flowing locks,
A maiden whose  melodies are as perfect as her fair skin;
Their fingers dancing on two very different sets of keys
Two very contrasted worlds, yet the love shines in both

They are two…

Towers of sturdy stone standing strong against the elements:
A place of sanctuary that shelters the young and timid,
A fortress of war whose catapults drive back the attackers;
Each with an independent foundation, built to stand alone
Yet one without the other would surely collapse into dust

They are two…

Canvases painted on by the greatest creator of all:
A portrait of a mentor encouraging a young learner,
A portrait of a warrior standing armed against evil;
Two scenes that appear to be so distant from one another
Yet when hung on separate walls they seem so very lacking

They are two, but their hearts are one.

It is difficult to find fitting words of gratitude at a time like this, which in itself is quite embarrassing. Words, after all, are what I do.

I am overwhelmed by tears of joy. To be so openly welcomed by a peer group of this caliber is a dream come true. I even smile at the irony, as both the group and my blog are second generations.

In the end, I am a little saddened, for what I give to you can never match what I have gained. As Uma herself has said, poetry is painting a picture with words. Thanks to all of you, I am surrounded by brilliant masterpieces each week. It is a privilege to be framed and hung among you.
