(1) Art Is An Octopus

Chiselled in stone;
Pencilled in a diary;
Splashed on a canvas;
Organised in sound;
Trapped on celluloid;
Arts octopoid revelation,
Is funnelled through an artist who,
With cat-eared alertness
And sponge like receptivity,
Plumbs the depths of our known world.
Like a pearl diver,
He resurfaces every now and again,
Displaying gems missed
On life’s busy highway.

I do appreciate your comment.
I think this poem enraptures how beautiful and graceful and octopus can be, it also compliments art.
I love the idea of this poem. There are so many interpretations to art, or indeed what it is in the first place but I think this poem captures it pretty well.
The painter, the poet, the sculptor, the novelist, - are all creators- holding up this mirror of truth before us.Well expressed Sir! - Raj Nandy
Yes the artist is a pearl diver…he can screen the value of the ignored ones in front of our eyes…the medium may differ as mentioned in the beginning Common things when funneled through an artist become a piece of art… You are too good with this tool of yours, words and language…very few have this unique way of expressing…..
