Can a picture be painted with words?Or is the linearity of language a huge barrier to showing us our complex world?I believe some of the great poets have been able to carry out this creative task.Poetry is not merely sweet simple rhymes.Starting way back in history we have great writers such as the Greeks,Hebrews,Romans.. ……….Homer,Horace,Ovid,King David .Plutarch…The Song of Songs may have been written by King Solomon…Not to mention Plato’s imagery of the Cave and all the Plays/Tragedies .Though a Play is not just words alone I have seen the Old Testament /Hebrew Bible described as being instrumental in the development of story writing.The stories of that people written in perhaps the first ever alphabet,It definitely predates the Greek alphabet.Recall Daniel in the lions den and David and Goliath.Despite our anti-Semitic culture as Xtians we have based much of our culture on their Bible and their traditions
