For The Love of Art…


Image culled from

The body moved in a certain pattern
Arching, bending, twisting and turning
The arms and legs swung easily to and fro
Like a disjointed attachment from a toy skeleton….


Image culled from @sharkcookie

The body moved swiftly, slowly and surely
Transforming at angles that at first seemed impossible…

The being was without form and bone as it performed unashamed magic,
Right before millions of prying eyes
It changed face and form.

Witchcraft! was the first to arrive on the scene of reactions
Later Horrendous and Unbelievable showed up

It wasn’t worthy of emulation, Not like that.
And then a certain entity, devoid of subjective societal limitations
Broke forth strong, in mind and heart
Strong willed and confident,
He would not be bent or bribed.
Standing in the clear,
He declared the Art Beautiful!
And he proceeded to represent it in a frame, Everyone couldn’t resist …

Charis Black

This Poem seems to be addressing the beauty of dancing. I’m a lover of Art. All the kinds of Art. However, this piece seems to be covering different Artistry, if you do a closer reading,(a deconstructive criticism). You will find that the poem seems to be describing the power of an objective critic, the influence of the television and the intimate art of photography. What can you see in the poem?

Thanks for visiting BlackWordz today. I hope you didn’t get confused by the poem but rather, you were able to see the dynamism and the complexus of amazing and great art in this short piece of writing. Your opinions and  thoughts are highly valuable to us, so please leave a comment before you go. Hope to see you again soon. Chao!

    The theme is unusual. That’s the best aspect of this work. It doesn’t read like a generic poem. Originality made it gold.
    I like the fact that you convey meaning with ease and simple but exotic words.
