I’ve had a PhotoPoems / Photo Poems series of posts seems since near when I 1st started my blog, and was tempted to call this verse, for Angel, a PhotoPoem also.

But even though I’ve a few posts tying poem and art work together, I don’t think that would be in the spirit of the thought behind the poems anymore. An art poem, I feel instinctively, is particular to the type of image – painted art, which for me is a more internally generated final image.

Which might explain to me why it’s been since spring of last year ( 2021 ) since the last image / poem I could find –

Yet, they’re close enough I’ll tag these style of posts #ArtPoems / #PhotoPoems.

Related, yet distinct 😊

I had the title line for this poem for a long time, since maybe the middle of last year, before I found the image I wanted to go with it, finding its home with Angel ❤️

I’ve no time pattern for these image/verse combinations of mine, sometimes running close together, other times, like this time round, with quite a bit a space between; I hope you’ll enjoy —

Light is But Darkness Feeling...

I sat floating
unaware up or down
not waiting, not even

something I
don't remember
don't know if I even

I first
began to taste
fullness, completeness
within and without
within motion

within sound

except to gestalt touch


at least until I
was born

heat and cold
soft and hard
my life
had become differentiated


I screamed

the darkness around me, within me

had waited

and found the light....

Stay well everyone!

I feel, not fear, our little solar system, our mighty galaxy, the stars around us, in us, is all — within the deepest darkness of our night of inner and outer space — also, simply light, simply feeling….

  1. Felipe I really enjoyed your poem, those were precise words forming a beautiful context full of imagery that goes right along with the painting you have paired it with. An aspect of your art which makes it much deeper, much more philosophical, as art is. Great work my friend! All the best.
