Art of the Day: Friday September 16, 2005

Never Really Gone

- by KiniArt

This week's theme: Poetry

"3 Poets: Dickinson, Poe & cummings" is the title of one of EBSQ's September exhibitions. It is not, however, the first show EBSQ has done with poetry as it's theme. In September 2002, the members of EBSQ Plus participated in "Conversations With Dead Poets." This week Art Of The Day features some of those works.

Art: Never Really Gone by Artist KiniArt

Inspired by Jimmy Stewart's poem, "Beau", written about his own beloved dog; Jimmy's poem has always been close to my heart, since the first time I heard him
read it on The Tonight Show. The lines of the poem that inspired this particular painting are:


"And now he's dead.
And there are nights when
I think I feel him climb
upon our bed and lie between us,
And I pat his head.
And there are nights when I think I feel that stare
And I reach out my hand to stroke his hair but he's not there."

I think the bond we share with our pets is very strong, no matter how old we are...And maybe, just maybe, the reason we still hear them, or feel their presence after they've passed is because they never really leave us completely...they're never really gone..
