Pile It On

pile it on

let it reach to the heavens

fill the world with art

and through that perhaps

mankind can stop for

long enough to enjoy

that silence and peace

can come to everyone

About John White

I've written off and on my entire life. It took years for me to finally take putting words together seriously. Now it's not, nor does it ever feel, like work. Writing daily has become habitual. No day is complete without words having appeared on the page.

  2. Miss Lavendius

    Thank You for that beautiful poem

  4. ‘Fill the world with art’


  5. Wonderful, a wonderful creation!

  6. “…that silence and peace can come to everyone” Beautiful words!

  7. Nice:) and by the way, I nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award https://thoughtsofagirlnamedvierareign.wordpress.com/w-o-w/ 🙂

  8. stop long enough to wonder…

  9. By negating all punctuation, a truly continuous flow of words has been created! Such is Art. 😊 beautiful… Well I’m trying my best in filling this world with it and I agree with you: so should everybody!

    • Thank you! I was breaking a few rules though I tend to do that often and not always to great effect. I think it may have worked in some ways here but not exactly as planned. I think any writer, sculptor, painter, musician…should work overtime and together they can fill the world with beauty. 🙂 It’s great to meet you!

  10. Wonderful 👌🏻

  11. I love reading your poems at night, just before I fall asleep. Something about their flow makes the mind slow down and unwind enough to relax into slumber; there’s a peace about them that I truly admire.

  12. John, you are growing a truly beautiful soul for yourself. I know the work is it’s own reward, but regardless of what it might mean to you, I would like to thank you for your generosity in sharing your journey.

  13. Art does have a way of making us stop and think. With your words, I become aware of a responsibility to create words that offer a chance for peace and a time for silence. Thanks for following “Anything is Possible!”

  14. There is a line in the novel The Idiot by Dostoyevsky that says (I am paraphrasing) that the world will be safe by beauty. I think that he is right. Lets fill the world with beauty through art because in its essence true art and true beauty is truth and truth always set us free!
