mind troubled with images
brush full of ink–
becoming empty

    I like this short form. The image reminds me of the film about contacting aliens through their written expression. Arrival, I think it’s called.

    Tiny but so well packed. I agree, Arrival, now I wonder what that shape represented

      Thanks Damien. I looked it up. the circle was supposed to be for nonlinear time, but they just sort of made it up as something totally alien to human communication. Except clearly they knew nothing about symbolism, because the circle is universal. And not all human cultures operation on linear time either. But of course how can humans really come up with anything that’s totally alien?

    I like the idea of the mind transferring itself on to paper through the brush, until the ink of inspiration ceases and the circle is done.

    I was thinking the same thing as Claudia, I couldn’t say not any better.

    I like the simplicity of your poem and mark. I try to make things too complicated sometimes… I like how this speaks volumes. ❤️
