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.

Reviewed by Connie Faust 5/31/2011
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.
