BLEEDING CLOUDS

White thick fog arose
I looked out the window
My dark-rimmed eyes cursing the lack of rainbows
Wishing…
Wishing for one last sweet rendezvous of what used to be
Videos of African rhythms that gripped my spirit
Bracketed hips that swayed
Back and forth
Hypnotic eyes lusting for the flesh
His dark flesh
A diplomatic pattern
that showered me
Held me
Wrapped my legs around his body
Glittering lies
Reminding me of what was once fed
Is now a world of famishment
Slowly dead
And I grumbled and ranted
Vile language of my mind
No proof of love in this establishment
No evidence of his floodwater
For he sucked me dry leaving me to die
With bed sheets thirsty for a beam of spotlight
Can I at least stand upright and see a sunrise?
Obscene were his lies covered in the papillae of his tongue
Saliva of a fabricator with foolish speeches
Believing he could save me from past obesity of heartbreak
And I swallowed hard his bit of food still left in my tongue
Began to feel cold as I looked up at the skies
Bowing at me sympathetically
Listing malicious homicide of bleeding clouds
The denouncer of love
Apparent, illuminating my nights
Love had lingered out the door
Leaving me with dust and smoke to inhale
Asthmatic road twitching my nose
No doves circling in the air
A tribe of crows shrilled
Piercing my winter’s merry go round
With graffiti wounds he left behind

These pieces are pics of standard graffitti combined with algorithmically created graffitti. Click on the pics below to open the applet. Once open, every time you click on the pic, the code recreates the algorithmic graffitti.

You will need to have Java and Quicktime installed. Most computers have it already but they are free downloads in case you don't have it.

Art is...
a form of expression that reaches deep within ones soul,
uniquely pure creativity,
a skill that can be learned through experience and/or observation,
something tasteful and appetizing,
a literal collection of words meant to convey a story or meaning,
relaxing to the mind, body and spirit,
a piece of us, as people, expressed for others to experience.

Thanks for the compliment. I was REALLY surprised that Fuzzy entered something and then so many. That really made my day (yesterday).

You made my day Sunday when you sent your submission. LOL I love yours. It is so ready to be posted to someone's site. Maybe yours... humm..... I love the quote, it is the topic for an interesting debate. Why did you select those colors, what was your inspiration?

Just a reminder, the next CC info is posted in the right hand column of my blog near the top.

I've always been angered by people who paint over graffiti. I wasn't going to post but i got a spark of motivation to go above and beyond for some reason. i explored the creative world and for once I can say that i enjoyed something to do with art. Kudos to you Ty, Great Idea!!!

cool entries. i'm not really visually creative. I can only really write and sing..i like photography tho..hmm I'll have to give you projects some though ty. 'till then.i'm content to be a spectator.

Omar -

You don't have to be creative visually to participate. You can sing, write some music, draw, sculpt or just take photographs also. I am trying to do a part in which every week I have a cameraphone entry. Nothing spectacular but keeps my creative eye open for possible inspiration.
