Darkened Room (Visual Poetry by poet Clive Blake) Phoetry - Visual Poetry - Comcrete Poetry - Poetry


Have you ever sat and pondered
In a darkened room;
Reality melting away
In the murky gloom,
Ignoring gravity's attempts
To try and hold you tight,
Heading off into space on a
Magic-carpet flight?

Did you explore the Universe,
Travel through all time,
Contemplate your own existence;
Even think of mine?

Did you ever find the answer,
To the question Why?
Did you really want to return from
Flying through the sky?

Did you come back with a jolt when
Someone came in the room,
Did the bright light startle you;
Did reality resume?

This 'phoem' is titled "Darkened Room” (Visual Poetry by poet Clive Blake) Phoetry – Visual Poetry – Concrete Poetry - Poetry,
from the 'Phoetry Book', View Points and Points of View".

I describe Phoetry as a fusion of poetry and photography.
I came up with the Phoetry concept in 1994.
Phoetry can also be described as Visual Poetry and loosely described as Concrete Poetry.

The poetry is by Cornish Poet Clive Blake cliveblake.deviantart.com/

It is absolutely true, sometimes your mind starts to drift and the journey begins. It feels so gentle and serene. Reality always regains control but the dream stays with you. The journey is often more exciting than the answer itself. I like the combination of phot and poetry. Excellent style.

Beautiful picture and beautiful verse!
The idea of phoetry is so captivating. I just wonder what comes first? A poem or a photograph? Do you get inspired by pieces of photography, or do you simply chose them to go with your poems?

Thanks for your brill comments. I came up with the idea of Phoetry and Phoems in the early 1990s and have enjoyed working in this way ever since.

Phoems come about in three ways
Photograph first
Poem first
Photograph and poem produced independently but just match well together (very few this way).

Thanks for your comments and your interest.
