Poems by Miss Garner
Hallowed music rings
Inherent to existence
I dance a lyrical song
My soul stirring, longing to be set free
Until with every movement that I create
At last, I find, the inner me.
How do I capture the beauty that I see in people, places, and in tiny things?
I put the pencil to the paper, yet it ends up close to frivolity.
I long to make a Rembrandt, Picasso, or Van Gogh
With my own brand cast upon it
Will I forever live in shadows?
I will not stop, I cannot stop, I’m meant to try to capture it!
One way that I have found I can, is by teaching it to my students.
Lights, camera, action!
A poignant message unfolds
A story, a story, tell me a story!
Tell me with your eyes
Tell me with your voice
Tell me with your gestures
Make it come alive!
Amuse me, even thrill me,
But most of all
make it personal…
Make it revelatory!
