A Creed and a Meditation

via Sherry Chandler:

If you’ve been reading here for a while, you know I have a sort of ongoing struggle with the relationship between poetry and image, as in “the plastic arts.” I tend to think of poetry as essentially a heard art form that takes place over time, whether it be the time the mouth takes to form the words or the time the eye takes to read over the line. But there is no escaping the fact that most of us do not experience most poetry aurally. We experience it as an artifact on a page.
