A Bouquet of Light upon Light – Bright Skylark Literary Productions

Recently the following quote from the poem A Poet Is a Clinton D. Powell, also known as “A Poem for a Poet,” has been making the rounds on the Internet: “A poet is a verb that blossoms light.”

The poem was written to commemorate my friend Clinton’s inspired life and early death on January 2, 2011. That others have been gleaning some small inspiration and motivation from the phrase seems appropriate enough. He would have liked that because although he was not particularly prolific as a poet, he was an extraordinary champion of the art and those who practiced it. There were few venues in Savannah, Georgia, where he did not turn up for open mics or other poetry showcases (including  classrooms on every educational level) to lend his support.

There is at least one art graphic that I’m aware of with the quote on it already but that one uses an image of me in support of National Poetry Month. I don’t have a problem with that but I also wanted something more illustrative of the words’ original purpose.
