Depth Of The Spark

See and read the words                      
Say and sing the words

The Words.
Speak the words
That are written for all
And all the words
Are
Written for
You.
 
Depressed?
The Great Ones
Pace bare wood
Floors
Carpeted
Two feet deep
in Rose petals
Stand at the rail
and gaze at the
Sea.
 
Rolling Fence Post Lanes
Streets
Lit dim
In shadow 
Ice
Cold Gin
Poetry
Paintings
Way
Into thoughts
With your
hand on my
Shoulder
and
Your words
in my Ear
as I write.
 
Never turn away from
the song in the word
and the
Heart
that
Holds Mine
In Yours.
While you see
And read the
Words
That Sing
Sign
Say
and
Share
The
Words.
 
As ever, be well.  Stephen Craig Rowe

    i enjoy your poem very much,though i cound not understand every word. We have only 3-day-holiday,then i will be back to school,studying very hard with my classmates,and next June,there will be a very important examination,really a very very important one. i`d like to say "Thank you".Your wonderful paintings really relax myself,and they make me forget the pressure in school.On 22nd Nov. i will be a 18-year-old boy!It really means a lot,i have so much things to learn.However,thanks for your paintings,i hope one day we can talk about the paintings and also the differences between American and Chinese culture. Be well. Ekin From Beijing,China

    Ahh yes – I much prefer this side of your work Stephen. lol I am sure the school poem was a fine piece of work, I could not read it more than twice though. lol It disturbed me so much to picture you so tortured – mind and body – as a child. I then realized it made you who you are today and perhaps even channeled your talent and thus you have to embrace it and deal with it or acknowledge it somehow. I am glad you were so strong willed and became who you are today. It could have gone all wrong – for some I’m sure it has. Moving on – I love this new piece, It means something special to me – growing up around so many deaf who thrived on my Aunt’s signing. She opened up a world for them they otherwise could not enjoy – and for me a great lesson in life. Beautifully written – with a compassion I am amazed you were able to hold on to and nurture. So glad you did.- Heidi

    Beautiful stuff – everytime I stop by, I am touched by your ability to express yourself and find myself a bit jealous. Have a wonderful and creative week.

    Hello Stephen!I just wanted to come by and tell you hello and see how you are doing. I am so sorry for not having any chance to do much visiting. It looks as if you are doing well, but I had no doubts that that is what I would think after visiting you. So on that little note, you have a good weekend and I will gab with you on another day, hopefully not so long a time span in between.Take care!Chow!Ren

    Stephen (may I call you that?)…I emailed her and sent her your link–she’s even more ‘reclusive’ than I am — the hardest thing for me has been the "get yourself out there" in regards to my writing-I’ve been penned "the Prose Prostitute" by my good friends *laughing* so true–and I know LIC has a difficult, even more difficult than I have, time with the "market yourself" aspect. She did stop by here and she called your work "cool art!!!! an asian wind blowing through exotic flowers."She’s very gifted….and one of my best friends.

    Hello Stephen=O) Been a bit (as usual) since I’ve been able to stop by. Out of curiousity, if you were to pick up a canvas, at random, what size would it be? Some of us like to work in smaller scales, some of us infinitely larger. Just a question out of curiousity=O) Take care! May your creativity flow like waters that would make the Mississippi jealous =O). TTYL amigo =O)-Sean

    Oh my good sir, I agree whole-heartedly. There’s something about MASSIVE scale that just speaks to the human mind, and creates an impact a small image can never hope to accomplish. Take Mount Rushmore as an example. We could stand upright and not even fill in the pupils. Sometimes scale is an amazing factor in artwork. Picasso and Frank Lloyd Wright have some excellent examples of such, as I’m sure you know. Take care, my friend, and apologies, in advance, for not stopping by as often as I’d like to, and as often as I feel I should. I really like your work, and your poetry as well. I wish I felt free enough to scribe down my thoughts at this point, but life is so stressful right now, it would all come out in a fashion that could only be described as Rangolian. lmfao. Couldn’t hack it at this point. At some point, though, my friend, I’d love to own one of your original works, but I’d like to make it a fair trade for one of my oils, which I’m still working on. Let me know if you’re game =O) Take care, and as always, may your creativity flow like the Nile in an Egypt we can’t even imagine.-Sean

    If you’re up for it, I’d love to chat with you, via MSN Messenger. The addy I use is on my page. I think it’d be a really cool thing for both of us. Take it under consideration. As always, Wishing the best for you =O)-Sean

    I should also add that I love the fact that you end pretty much everything in "Be Well". The fact that you’re taking others into account while expressing your own opinion is something that is not so often found these days. The fact that I believe that you mean it whole-heartedly makes it that much better. I think it’s awesome, and I try lend the good people I’ve met on spaces the same appreciation. =O)-Sean

    Deer stunned dervish desolate, I stand in the Light. Free and alone, with winds ringing about and with no fear of flying, soaring. The wings softly sweep against the screen and often touch the core. Rather like a slide shown sideways and illuminates the walk within. There the dream spangles the stars encompaces the globe and spins ever on…ever on dervish dancing! Waving faded colors in the rose print wind and hold all near and dear for all. In the Light.Thank you. As ever Be well. Stephen Craig Rowe
