The Crafting of Words – An Art Form! Haibun Thinking #7

02-michelangelo-cherubsCherubs by Michelangelo

I dwell alone, existing in a solitary world drifting among various thoughts, not a vacuum but a potential happening. A dreamlike state, at flux within the flow of creating – determining potentialities with the formation of my words, perhaps stylized, perhaps distinctive, uniquely me. Poetic in prose, pleasing to the eye, original.

The crafting of words is an art form. And in essence, the same as any artist in the throes of creation, the different factor being only that of medium. But as for the rest, an artist at work.

Cascading possibilities stream endlessly through consciousness and I am reminded my personal pallet of verbal colors can be as expressively rich as a glorious spring day, corresponding adjective hues and nuances as numerous as the most vivid of rainbows viewed through moisture laden air after a summer storm.

My words will be like onto visual works of art, flowing in movement, a glorious symphony of expression, making known to you my thoughts and feelings in a manner that will move you as many artists do with their creations. It is, after all, what we do – we artists of the word.

  1. This is perfection, Penny. The way you have described the flow of words coming from the head as a flow of paint comes from a brush. The crafting of words is indeed an art form and I am blessed to know two or three who are masters of that form, and also journeymen (or women if you like) who are so wonderfully good as well.

    You paint this Haibun, and I thank you for taking part this week.

Thank you for your thoughts!
