Poetry Potluck Week 44 - Painting Whispers

There is No More Sunday Depression or Monday Blues because it is 
Poetry Potluck Time!!!

Welcome to Jingle Poetry Potluck Week 44, and I must thank you all for an amazing response we got with your lovely posts. It was great being there and spending some time with loads of coffee and reading great posts. And I am SHASHI going on to my 2nd week at another beautiful week of Poetry Potluck.

Now coming to Poetry Potluck theme of this week "Painting Whispers” !!!... Some times, when we come across a great painting, or a creative work or a natural beauty... it triggers in us some latent thought, words come out pouring and you end up writing a master piece on whatever you could find ... a napkin, a paper program or on the back of the pamphlet you have been handed over at the museum.
These inspired moments are most opportune times to give words to your feelings, thoughts and emotions... and usually it gives you insight to greater understanding of your self... and then share it with the world...

So here you are, check out some paintings, look deeper inside you in your feelings, see the beauty all around you in the nature and then listen to the whispers of your heart.... and then paint them in your words....
Go on and start Painting Whispers....

Leaving that aside, let's get back to the main topic here. 3...2...1-
*Lets put our whispers in colours of love, life and living and Paint our Whispers* 
Poetry Pot Luck “Painting Whispers”

And my friends here is part of my submission to the theme of "Painting Whisper".... inspired by the above painting "Death and Life" by Gustav Klimt
Sometimes, my thoughts whisper to me about life, living and who actually I am. Sometimes I am the mind, sometimes I am the soul, and sometimes I am the result of the past, living in ‘now’... sometimes I am nothing but just ‘someone’ who lives within and dares to whisper...

Sometimes when I wake up
I know that I am dead
And being dead is not easy
As it bleeds in ‘now’
In moment by moments of living
Foot prints of red....
ॐ नमः शिवाय 
Om Namah Shivaya

Now below is part of a poetry by Jorie Graham titled “Two Paintings by Gustav Klimt” for you to enjoy and be inspired to start Painting your own whispers.....
They say when Klimt
        died suddenly
a painting, still

was found in his studio,
        a woman’s body
open at its point of
rendered in graphic,

detail—something like
        a scream
between her legs. Slowly,
he had begun to paint
        a delicate

garment (his trademark)
        over this mouth
of her body. The mouth
        of her face
is genteel, bored, feigning a need
        for sleep. The fabric

defines the surface,
        the story,
so we are drawn to it,
        its blues
and yellows glittering
        like a stand
By Jorie Graham

Ravenblack said...

I'm in. :) Have a great week ahead, everyone!

Fountains said...

Oh, I think I've messed up... I thought only one entry for Thursday Rally was allowed, but we could share up to three poems at the Poetry Potluck. Am I confused? :P

Daydreamertoo said...

Yes, sometimes I write from feelings a picture has evoked.
These are lovely~!

The Poet said...

Hello all.
Deep poetry & amazing painting.
Very fitting Music of the Week.

Two entries from me this week. ;-)

Have a wonderful Potluck everyone!

Jingle Poetry At Washington State said...


at poets rally, we prefer one entry, yet, some poets submit more than one, we don't want to hurt the poets thus did not delete additional ones, but the rule is clearly stated.

YEs, you are right, we poetry potluck we encourage free style of sharing, thus you can share 1 to 3 poems if you wish.

welcome, have fun!

Hi. I'm sorry for asking, but I was just invited to this and I am a little confused. Would someone be able to explain it to me?

Peggy Nolan said...

I opted to share a slice of my weekend with you - A Day At The Beach - not theme related, but see if the poem and photographs I took whisper to you!

Unknown said...

I have picked 2 modern day pieces of art by the graffiti artist Banksy really like his work as it is accessible to all and often has a message within it ....many thanks for the opportunity

Hope said...

paintings are a great way to be inspired
happy potluck everyone!

Isabel said...

Marbles in My Pocket said...

Submitted one with my own choice of painting. No time to write, as I've been dealing with major computer issues all weekend. Trying to get everything loaded onto a new one this morning and get back into the swing of things. Will be reading and commenting this afternoon. Really enjoying participating in these rallys and such! Hope I'm doing things properly!

Tanka of the Day
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Some art inspires
tears, joy, admiration,love.
Some awakens thought.
And some makes one want to ask:
"Whatever were you thinking?"

To all Blogspot poets: I am having difficulty commenting on some of your sites. No idea why--probably something to do with the new computer. In any case, my apologies if you do not recieve a return comment from me. I continue to try, but on sites where I am not given the "Name/URL" option, I am many times turned away with a message that says my comment was not able to be processed. If anyone has advice as to how to solve this, please let me know!

Sometimes our art is a mask. One we put in front of our supposedly true selves for the world to see. Ah, but our art is more true than we know and too late we find we have been exposed!

abby said...

Writing poetry is prayer for me. It can't be forced and I can't research it enough to choose a topic. It simply is or isn't.

Mitch said...

My poetry is how I express thoughts that are provoked by life. Read of me, and you shall know me more intimately than even my family.

Gwen Dubeau said...

Happy Potluck everyone!

A poem and picture, I hope you enjoy. :)

T F Carthick said...

Nice theme. I am back at Jingle after a short break. Please find my work here.

thats rich of unspoken story,,,,,

Miss Kitten said...

I sat down to write about a painting. Since both of my parents are artists, I thought it would be easy. But I ended up writing about an old photograph, instead. Oh well, best not to question the muse.

Anonymous said...

I think I am done but will carry on reading just in case :)

I am thoroughly enjoying reading all this wonderful poetry from such talented people.

So glad to be a part of this community :)

This is an amazing place to read other writers and get inspiration to write myself. I am sad that I discovered this place only last week.. :)

Thanks Jingle and others who are behind this.

Unknown said...

Thanks so much for having me in the Poetry Potluck! :-)

Just linked in two short poems last night. I am on holiday now so I don´t have much time to write, but I hope that they will do.

Have a lovely week!

Dave King said...

Superb prompt, but have I misunderstood: should there be more than one poem?

Rosie@travel-i-tales said...

You've come up with a fantastic theme...I'm sure all of us were inspired.

The Poet said...

I'm loving the new lineup of the officials...;-)

Unknown said...
