Portrait of an art as a young lee

toads prompt today, take a look at this painting, distill what dream you can from it.

Mi Young Lee

In iconic typography, commas, colons
Words are painted dynamically
In lines, grids, pages arrayed
Through their center a ray
Of sunlit emotion depends
Over moonscapes, earthrise
Fragile flowing words weft
Easily warp’t, timeless, bereft
Pleasure, payment, in firebox
Flame’d containment.
Into the sharp corners
Watch what you have wrought.

  1. Wow. This is really good. I especially like this part:

    Easily warp’t, timeless, bereft
