Comparing the two and what they each need to achieve.
Please note the echo on all lines of the stanza.
Pen and Words or Brush and Paint
Creator's stance cannot be faint
Digging deep, on senses draw
Searching soul for something raw
Conjuring within mind's eye
A vision no one can decry
For such a scene must be unique
Creator bears his own critique
Be it words or be it paint
A finished piece must ne'er be faint
That piece when viewed must always draw
From deep within, reaction raw
And firmly place in viewer's eye
A vision they cannot decry
Effect on each remains unique
Perception bears its own critique.

|Great writing! It doesn't pay to be halfhearted in writing, or painting (although I personally do not paint) Each piece is an extension of the author/painter, and deserves careful, impassioned effort.
