Poetry Perception
« on: May 03, 2012, 01:30 PM »

what color is this poem
read it in braille
or french

                                  what color is the house
                                  black, white or red
                                  I ask which side does the sun
                                  set
                                  rise

If you became blind today
would you still dream in color

I agree, Matt. As someone who has suffered extensive vision loss, I often wondered about this very thing.
You'd be surprised how many people believe they will forget---color, things like that.It's not uncommon.
I really am glad I came in and read this today. I really enjoyed it and it meant something to me on a personal level, but hopefully to others as well. We must never forget how beautiful those things we see everyday are, even if we can only continue to see them in dream, perceive them that way.
The eyes are part of the brain. The brain is home for our images, all those memories, anything imagined or stored there.
thanks, Rg :rose

Hi illiterati and Kay

Thanks for your kinds words. Yes concrete and/or experimental poetry can be fun to create. Creativity is only stimulated by stepping outside the circle and experimenting. And yes our minds store everything, even things we don't consciously notice or hear.

fun questions
no answers like they're rhetorical
and have no answer rather than
not requiring one.

I've heard a lot of people don't dream in color.  I do, and sometimes black-and-white - and portions of it are in color - usually an item.  I would hope that if I could no longer see, that I would still dream in color.  I also love "what color is this poem" - awesome to think about.

How do you post an image in the response; I have an screen shot image that includes a corresponding picture from my book that is similar to your narrative?
The "attach:" form field doesn't appear to work for me. It does navigate to my local drive but there is no upload function. I've tried several methods and none show up in the post preview.
Or is that feature not enabled?
