Haiku #322

not bird song wakes me
but still lifes and lithographs -
sound lines and colour

Lovely
Art inspires me.

A comment on The Turner Prize going to A Sculptor of Sound for recordings of her sin ging voice overlaid one on top of another.

Thanks Leatherdykeuk - it wasn't intended as a critical comment (not in a Haiku!), rather a neutral one.

I caught that too Dave. Reflection vs. Experience.

David Cranmer said...

I love the cadence of the words.

It would be great to hear her singing in the original places of the sounds. Thanks for the haiku about it.

There's always more in a work of art than the artist knows - and long may it be so! (Of course, sometimes it's just that the artist is incompetent!)

David
Now that I hadn't expected, but thanks for it.

Gerry
I did hear her. She has something, I think, but I'm not sure how it can be awarded a prize specifically given for a work of visual art.

Nice one!

Just catching up - Dave I really admire this one. I got the reference but the poem stands in its own right, as a homage to art. I think the neutrality you speak of is what makes it work!
