Delve deep into the world of art and poetry and be inspired to look closer at nature, life, and love!
There is another Loneliness
That many die without -

This is about being perfectly contented within yourself. When I am completely emersed in my work, lost within line and color, this is exactly how I feel, and I imagine how Emily Dickinson felt when lost within her perfect wording of this poem.
It is easy to work when the soul is at play - But when the soul is in pain - The hearing him put his play things up Makes work difficult - then - It is simple, to ache, in the Bone, or the Rhind - But Gimblets - among the nerve - Mangle daintier - terribler - Like a Panther in the Glove - Emily Dickinson This poem is about the instinctual aspect of creativity, which is represented by the Panther. This type of creativity includes all manner of things that require a person to lose themselves. You completely lose yourself and become the Panther. It requires you to get your brain out of the game.

This poem is saying, do not think something, someone, or some event is going to solve all your problems. Marriage, kids, job, bigger house, fancy car, none of it is
To try to speak, and miss the way And ask it of the Tears, Is Gratitude’s sweet poverty, The Tatters that he wears - A better Coat if he possessed Would help him to conceal, Not subjugate, the Mutineer Whose title is “The Soul” Description, "The Soul" is a wild beast, a "Mutineer," who goes out and lets loose, and the better he gets at something, the wilder it becomes, making a soccer goal, winning a boxing match, creating an amazing poem, creating an amazing piece to go with it. But as cocky as these famous athletes and artists can be, they are not without extreme gratitude for the people and Gods that helped them to get to where they are.
