    Why I had to revisit this poem.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George...ough%20surface.

    dot
    dot dot dot
    dot dot dot dot dot
    dot dot dot
    dot dot
    dot

    Dot, dot, dot, just half a dot!

    Loved your new take on Shelley!

    Truth:
    hearts dew
    refreshing shy bushy bugs,
    greening the landscape.

    Thanks for the link on Seurat. I didn't know how young he was when he, and his children, passed.

    I tried Morse code for the dots for maybe an acrostic understanding: ess5ie v ? (some interesting google hits, but nothing concrete; my favorite: https://www.google.com/search?q=ess5...id:7xY02X3kqK8 )... Then thought maybe a concrete poem... OR just nonsense !? lol

    I like your reduction/reimagining for Truth:

    on further reflection

    unity - heart's fog
    how bushy high ebbs;
    wends refreshment

    truths show like bug's light
    shy outpouring refines capacity

    Enjoyed your arrangement in "On further reflections"
    I couldnīt access your You Tube link. The content appears and then immediately disappears.

    Found some Pointillism links:
    https://www.byarcadia.org/post/georg...inting-in-dots

    A Story Written in Stone

    A lean triangular figure
    projecting its shadow
    on the sands of the desert.
    A woman? A wandering spirit?
    Itīs followed by a huge form:
    A bear? A man? A giant?
    In the rear a camel or maybe a mule.

    The stone doesnīt offer answers,
    just images.

    Some observations from your links that caught my eye:
    “[…] in reality, the dots of pure unmixed colour are not actually combined by the human eye, which still sees them as separate colours. However, they do appear to oscillate or vibrate, creating a type of shimmer.” (Encyclopedia of Art History, n.d.).
    “[…] the perception of three-dimensionality is acquired through a process of experimentation, by which we repeatedly move our bodies and engage haptically with surrounding objects, while simultaneously receiving a series of visual and ocular-motor sensations.” (Foa, 2015, pp. 22-23)
    From one of your google links - Sothebys.com: Pointillism: 7 Things You Need to Know... https://www.sothebys.com/en/articles...u-need-to-know

    Some nice examples of pointillism on pinterest

    Your poem is wonderful !

    Just slightly off topic is a fascination I have with stone/pebble/mosaic art: https://www.google.com/search?q=artw..._AUoAXoECAIQAw

    Thanks!

    Enjoyed pebble art. Going to try my hand on it. Just must discover what kind of glue to use.


    Pebble Destiny

    A hand moves a pebble
    on a white leaf of paper.

    The precarious creatures it creates
    Claim a life of their own.

    The tumult reaches the author
    who rips the white leaf.

    But each fragment
    subsists.

    Love this poem

    Mine: still a little clunky, albeit a bit better than the original... room for another edit or two:

    Autumn Leaves / an acrostic

    Autumnal frosts nap at first as
    Ubiquitous gold and brown leaves begin to fall
    Tiny nips on one's nose come November mean
    Unseasonal frosts and the rain spells
    Morning naps, resting near the wood stove
    Nesting instincts trade jeans for sweats

    Light frosts will crown leaf mounds with diadems
    Ethereal in their autumnal display
    Abbreviated when Autumn leaves soon enough with
    Variable snow flurries falling late to signal an
    Early winter to laud the Christmas season -
    Symbolic of a new beginning

    Oh my! Was away but forgot to log out.

    Defective haiku
    C vitamin, good food
    and keeping warm enough.
    Wish you a quick recovery!

    I like your poem, specially the lines:
    "Light frosts will crown leaf mounds
    with diadems
    Ethereal in their autumnal display"

    An Anonymous Man Named Danvers

    There once was a old man who laughed.
    He said, "See my lovely spacecraft!"
    It was rather grand,
    But very hard to land
    You see it relied on a pogo stick shaft

    Googled "pogo stick shaft"

    Advent times
    December
    Month of extremes
    Icy cold or hot as a dessert
    Among the people endlessly rushing
    through the main streets
    A mad Santa Claus
    His bag packed
    With next years destinies.

    Enjoyed

    An Anonymous Man Named Rolf

    There once was a man named Rolf
    Who loved to play nighttime golf
    Though the playing was hazy
    It was the full moon made him crazy
    Chasing golf balls gamboling as a wolf

    Hoping he gets some anonymous sleep!

    The louse

    There was a small lose
    so anonymous
    she didnīt even have a name.

    This small louse
    so anonymous
    she didnīt even have a name
    Attacked a mouse.

    And this small louse
    so anonymous
    she didnīt even have a name
    which attacked a mouse.
    grew powerful.

    She gave birth
    to innumerous
    anonymous louses.
    And the mouse
    became their house.
