I Can't Poetry

on 29 May 2014 at 11:14:09 MDT

I am never sure whether to take prose writing at face value for what the words say, or whether someone is trying to have a deeper meaning that I am just not noticing.

A long time ago I had to choose a poem and write down what I thought it meant, but I wanted to read a poem about a lovely song bird. The problem was, I really didn't feel there was any deeper meaning in the words other than describing what it means to a bird to sing.

However, I was told that the poem, and every poem, always has a deeper meaning and that I was missing the deep biblical intonations implied by a poem about a singing bird. To this day, I still do not see where any of that was implied in the poem and it has made me wary of expressing an opinion on most poetry. If you have an opinion on how to view poetry, please let me know!

The character I use to represent myself is a bird that likes to sing and look fancy, but usually sounds loud and terrible.

    I took a stab at colouring with blending modes so I'm not sure how this looks.

      That is pretty, I like the color shades! Maybe his chest is a little glow in the dark, but he is a very brightly colored bird!
