The End (Lament of a Cornish poet by Clive Blake) Phoetry – Visual Poetry – Concrete Poetry - Poetry

I began a poem by writing its end,
Like gunpowder exploding
Before the touch-paper is lit,
I finished that poem,
Before I’d started it ...


--------------------------------------------------------------
This 'phoem' is entitled "The End” (Lament of a Cornish poet by 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/

Sometimes the inspiration goes missing. We create the perfect ending but are totally unable to find a dramatic beginning. This is both short and simple and highlights the dilemna of many a poet. Nicely done.

I like this photo, nice cool dim light blue sky with dark black ground. I like the silhouette of the man with the tool.
