My friend confided about her dumbfounded realization of the crazy life of visual artists. Many visual artist internship is without pay. She is feeling worse that anybody to realize such experience. To make it much worse is her realization freelance is likened to a business instead of part time job. Now, she is so upset and frustrated of her stupidity. Please pray for her. Therefore, the above poetry is birthed. Wish you all have good days and thank you.
Arts exhibition to spread message via form showcase
Content injected into artistic form
An array of visual media messages inhibited a spacious room
Display and speaks the
Past, present, and prophesied future
All these put the artist in a spotlight
Beasts reluctantly lose their freedom
To spotlight in the cages of zoo
To spotlight in the circus performance
Stage and props are a cage of zoo
Artists willingly stand on the stage
To gain famous
To earn livelihood
Living another character in them
Is where the artists are
Artists in zoo
To entertain spectators and audience

Pat’s poetry sparked the birth of this visual poetry existence in my mind. Her poetry can be found at http://patcegan.wordpress.com/2013/11/20/the-zoo/ . Hope you enjoy and get my message.
In the visual artists’ vocabulary
Image is a language in their minds
To produce tangible visual artworks.
Visual people remember events through
Pictures, photos, mental snapshots through the eyes
Into the brain’s memory banks.

“Visual language” came to my mind when I want to express the above haiku. Slowly, the right words flowed out as I revised it the second time.
Objects in different shapes
To still toddler.

Surprisingly, the animation “The Iron Giant” by Brad Bird captivated my 26 months toddler who took it from my computer table, requested to watch it, and finished the whole animation. It is an unbelievable sight and experience for me as a mother who accompanied him. He is someone who can not sit still for too long and will tend to shriek desperately when in front of television with my family members. Then jumps down onto the floor and moves around. So the above inspiration started with “Visually captivating, visually stunning.”
