Poetry Contest

let the creative take shape


Carl Gustav Jung is mostly known as the founder of analytic poetry. He worked with a wide range of themes such as dreams , the subconscious, the mythical imagination, the shadow etc etc

Though also he was a visual artist and painter his whole life. The paintings have a very strong symbolic meaning. In his Black books and Red book he published an amount of art that fascinated many scientists and showed his visionary side.

Besides being a psycho analist Carl Jung also suffered from hearing voices and psychosis, which he actively used for his art and called it the active imagination. His art is described as both confusing and amazing but I choose the latter and have been studying it for a short while now  His art works have the ability to open the mind and surely challenge and inspire

In this competition I dare you to look your own active imagination in the eye and create a poem or short text about what you see in the art work.

Find an artwork that Jung has made, there are some pages I found but either they have too few images or the same ones. I figure that you will be able to find some images of his artwork. The video above is a good easy way to look at it and get an idea about it.

ONE poem per poet
a new poem with the title
Like I said preferably choose one artwork
or write about Jung the ARTIST
no collabs
one month

Enjoy

greetings
Rian

Thought in the absence of all control exercised by reason

Point blank pistol
bullet up your nose
folded dog ear flicked by flea
twisted knee scrawney sinue
red lip chap stick slapstick
piano ice cream tray
red velvet curtain will the song play
chitty chitty bang bang over the cliff
snorkeling miss the fish paralaxed
waterski hits tyre
headlands look the same
borderlands the game
zombie moment insane
minni chedders wear red sweaters
in the month of may
calender notes dont play happy tunes
random selection breaths cold into my room
conversations left on window condensation
cavemen shadows dance lost intrance
rainbow hand drawn a thousand times
thumbs too hard to paint.

Natures concepts

Impinge but with a sense of loss
the hues that permeate our thoughts
A fronds, its splits,  
divisions, where the ladder sits.
The transient to higher thought,
warped origins from trunks of innocence
so green.
Stem from a whiter branch maybe.
Pansies float like butterflies,
the mind of art that breeds disguise.
A shadow of a duck that floats,
a sign to raise our hopes
Washed up on the synoptic low.
Hollywoods, star staircase empty now,
where high aspirations  sit upon a bough,
Tabby cat will howl to no avail
and nature bows to only gales

Who I Am

Who am I to tell you who I am?

I am a daughter with a sacred ring
I am a son of the living king

I am the life animating bones
I am the skin in exotic tones

I am the breath of a better way
I am the sun of a brighter ray
I am a child, a prince, an heir
I have a crown, and beauty faire

I am the rhyme, without a scheme
I am the stitching without the seam
I am the wind; although you hear it
Truly fills my spirit

I am the voice in the wilderness call
I am the voice of the one in the hall
I am the one that appears to the One
I am the victory already won
