Inked by street artist


Streets whirl from wheels & neon lights
Metallic doors click  
Every second on subway
You close your eyes, basking the sun
You're muse above our electrical poles  

What dreams do you dream?

  1. There is every bit as much beauty in urban settings as there is rural...just in different ways.

  6. Dreams and muses are ever present in your colorful poem, and there is where my dreams begin as a rule. Poetry and visions all around bring me to dream a dream that I can control! But it's the dreams at night that me fully awake to me!

  9. I love big cities. Not a lover of graffiti, but I do love art like this on buildings. This is great...both the photo and your written words.

  10. I can imagine this written in a subway train.

    I am a bit uncertain of the reading in the last line:
    You are muse above our electrical poles or Your muse... both work in context.

    2. If it is all as good as this, then it will be entertaining enough.
      But one still needs that inward eye above the poles in order to survive.

  15. Love your dreaming, Grace. In olden days, artists dreamed their work on buildings (friezes).
    Each frieze measured about 8-10 feet, top to bottom, and ran the length of the building--
    AND TOLD A STORY. Often they painted another frieze outside above the first one, then sometimes another one above that, each telling a story. And now we use phrases like, "That house is THREE STORIES HIGH." (But you knew all that, yes?)

    Please continue painting your story poems, Grace, they are refreshing and uncomplicated, and send messages sometimes--grin!

  16. I really like the question at the end. Brings it all together in a very cool, unexpected way.

  17. I had a hard time below ground in DC… I ended up paying the taxi drivers. The time I saved was well spent - The resting in and reaching for the sun's rays is certainly a salvation of some sort - it would be for me!

  19. I really like the way you take us into the psyche of the image, the object, the subject.

  20. Nice imagery, Grace, conveying a sense of contentment.

  21. I used to see more graffiti than I do now--I don't commute daily any longer--there is something powerfully moving about street art of all sorts I think--
