No Theme – No Boundaries











No path to follow, nor touch to guide.

Unforeseen adventure, careless and free.

No signs baring entry, or  fences blocking passage.

Dreamers wander, pursuing uncommon energy.


No map to guide, nor compass to navigate.

Unrestrained and dauntless, a liberating, exploit.

abstract imagination, envisioning virtuosity.

Unhindered thought, pursuing creative spontaneity.


No syllabus outlined, perceptions illuminating.

Inspired visions, released in imaginative thought.

Delicate symmetry of complete imbalance.

Boundaries withdrawn, pursuing joyous independence.


The Artists Challenge, has yet another theme.  This one is new and interesting, the theme is “No Theme”.  The question then becomes, just how does one define no theme.  I’m excited to see the results of the different artists visions.  If there’s one thing I’m learning about the artist community, it’s that the individual diversity is startling.    The unique visions of  one theme, is amazing in itself.  With this new theme, or NON-Theme, the product of their endeavors should be incredible.

The above poem, is my submission for the No Theme Challenge.   The Challenge is scheduled to debut Aug 16 th, 2009, be sure to go check it out.  You will most likely be pleasantly surprised, and just might find something you just have to have.

That's a VERY interesting poem Rico. I dig it Bro!

Only three thoughts at the moment:

Q2L2: Dauntless unrestraint or Unrestrained & dauntless, a liberating exploit
(because you've got this cool rocking chair rythym going in the rest of the poem because of the line structure and comma placements, but Q2L2 breaks pattern/rythym the way its currently constructed)

Q3L3: Delicate symmetry, complete inbalance
(ditto comment above)

Q24: add "pursuing" in front of joyous

--------- ????? What do you think? ????
