A Portrait..... With Different Dimensions!


Top five artists selected
To make portrait of a pretty girl.

All ready with canvas, paints and brushes.
With beautiful girl in front.
Along with audience and panel of judges.

All the portraits were finished and
displayed to audience.
The portrait looked alike the girl.
Was the audience voted for.

Judges comments was Quiet astonishing....
In all the five portraits.....
The girl looked alike at one glance.
But each portrait spoke of different emotions.

It can be said in either ways

One way is...
When one artist saw liveliness
Other saw painfulness in girl
Or may be a boredom to sit on same position
For quiet long.
Mind is never free from thoughts.
The girl thoughts were quiet important
She may have been passing thru different emotions,
At that time though she was sitting idle.
This Made the artist to look with different perspective.
Or
It can be other way too...
The emotions of artist himself got mixed
With the stroke of brushes
And so is the portrait too looked that way.

A thin line of stoke made by a brush
Is quiet sufficient to bring lot of changes.

Similarly, A poem is looked with different perspective.
Readers views and poets view may be same
Or somewhat quiet different.

So it can be said either this way or either that way...
But with some way...

Life is like a beautiful portrait,
looked with different perspective.

We share our perspective because we have Life!

    Life is like a beautiful portrait,
    looked with different perspective.
    We share our perspective because we have Life!
    We can't get rid of our ego, and so is God, His ego is reflected in all His creations, and this is His ego when blended with that of ours creates various images of God. (Report) Reply

    How boring would are world be if everything thought the same, talked the same, looked the same and acted the same. *cries* I would leave her immediately if that was the case. Thank the gods it is not. I appreciate the theme in this poem and wish more people were understand and respectful to every perspective. I value this piece. Allan (Report) Reply

    A very nice poem, it would be nice if you could explain or describe the minute changes each artist made in the portraits depending on the mentality of the model girl or moods of the artist.. (Report) Reply

    Ah but poetry has a life of it's own.
    While the brush strokes have dried they can never change.
    A poem is a living document to life often changing every time it is read.
    A poem read today will have a totally different existence thirty years from now. (Report) Reply

    A great poem, the good thing about art and poetry is that like you say
    we all see something different to what other people see. (Report) Reply
