Art, a love poem written by Ray Bell at



written by: Ray Bell


Write a poem about a work of art she said

How could I possibly
use words to describe you?
Words are not enough
They won’t do you justice.

How could I possibly
Explain the shade of your eyes?
The way the light makes them shine
Their haunting radiance.

How could I possibly
Describe the landscape of your mind?
Your thoughts and ideas
Flowing like brushstrokes when you speak.

How could I possibly
Write how God herself
Crafted you with such precision
Being so meticulous
About your shade
Your color
Your texture
Your light…
