Post Canvas And Paint: Abstract 03 – The Consuming Sky

As the sky fell to earth I heard a memory, and it was not so long ago that I fell in love….

The consuming sky

A poet feels the impulse to create a work of art when the passive awe provoked by an event is transformed into a desire to express that awe in a rite of worship. – W. H. Auden

  1. Poetry is not turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion: it is not the expression of personality, but an escape from personality. But, of course, only those who have personality and emotions know what it means to want to escape from these things. T. S. Eliot
