Pictures in Our Minds

A poet can put an image with a verse, or let the readers form their own. The poet’s words are like a brush in the artist’s hands, painting a picture for all to see.

The writer creates through words, a story with fictional characters. Each reader will provide faces to each character as they read, even giving the character a voice.

We form pictures in our minds. We have a need to put faces to names. When we hear a voice on the phone or radio, we subconsciously create a face for the voice. Given a blank in a sentence, we will fill it in, each one with our own idea.

We do not like blanks. We do not like the lack of a visual or an incomplete thought. We need to know. We need to see. No need to wonder why we have so much trouble with a concept called “Faith.”
