Ekphrastic Poetry



When truth about
Life broods momentarily,
The reality of moments exploding
Artistically, without parti pris, in that
Instant when no one save the capturer
Experiences eternity in milliseconds,
Reaching past the diatribe of those
Who seek primarily to denigrate
The shortcomings of others
And call it art,
A moment when
The essences of the
Visionary admit foiling
But still firmly grasp …

Life becomes ageless, not
The moments we enumerate, but
All those we pretermit in our quest
For substance

I loved "Milliseconds" it shows us how important it is NOT to waste time.

I'm not sure what you mean. But I do believe you're talking about creative energy that is wasted on diatribe.

I was about to use the image of a water drop caught in a millisecond for the cover of my upcoming book, It's in the Water and Other Stories. This “atomic” water droplet is far more interesting and I need to use it in place.

Richard, life I suppose IS a series of moments, some we
discard, some we cling to and enlarge to shape who we are.
Methinks you have again hit upon my kind of poem. -gene.

I think moments of discovery like this shatter the old way of thinking. A new path is taken, built from the past. A thought-provoking poem, my friend:)

How deep in thought and to see through the reflection of time, yet time itself is fluid, leaving behind an illusion...

There is really nothing to grab hold of. Art can be the reflection/proof of substance. Everything built up and then broken down and why somethings last longer....even minds "go". alot to kick around in this one. MM

interesting slant on the notion of time, einstein once saying (yes, quotes again): life is merely illusion, albeit a persistent one. the horror, sci-fi author HP Lovecraft calling life nothing more than a series of pictures in the head. you seem to be grappling with this subject a lot lately and i'm always left to pontificate just what the hell i'm doing here; but it's only when viewed from the viewpoint of "I." when i begin the observe the collective, i realize that we "are." good stuff richard....

Superbly intelligent and eloquent lesson,
Richard, on not missing out the vital second we live in
every second; 'substance' (and i like the particular use
of the word here) is distraction from the vital
and a failure to live essentially.

beautifully expressed, richard; perfect photo!

Reviewed by Christine Tsen 5/25/2011
Our experience of life and of this universe is so subjective as for some years can pass in moments while for others miliseconds last an eternity! Criticism, praise, attacks and assistance can all shape our experiences profoundly. Each of us holds such power.
