Smithfield, VA - United States

Lianne, I understand now that Misere is your own words. You are quite a fabuous writer/poet. The image is stunning and touching alone and then those deep and thoughtful words with it add special meaning. Thank you for comments today. F/V

Lianne Schneider replied:

Lianne Schneider replied:

Bendigo, Vi - Australia

love this one, simply stunning v

Lianne Schneider replied:

I hadn't meant originally for it to be quite so Gothic or melodramatic but sometimes art takes on a life of its own. In this case, I think the poetry drew this out as an extension of the words. I'm so very pleased and grateful that you like it so much.

Marion, IL - United States

Incredible and dramatic moment in the life of human kind captured brilliantly. f/v.

Thank you so much Wanda - it's so rewarding when someone really "feels" what one is trying to express. That just means the world.

Littleton, CO - United States

I just became your 70th vote....=) There anguish of the work is palpable. Anyone who loves knows what it feels like to be love sick. Even our best attempts at love are not enough to stop us from wounding those closest to us at times. Extraordinary work!

What an amazingly lovely and thoughtful thing to say Angelina and what wonderful insight. It means so much to have someone respond to the poetry as much as the image and I thank you for that.

Brookeville, MD - United States

Lianne, I have chills ... your image ... your poetry ... I am humbled by your enormous talent and your wisdom. How right you are when you say "We have, in the end, only this present in which to love, to be all that we can be and be true to ourselves and in this way only bring peace to each other." It is as if the universe directed me to this image and your words tonight. Thank you.

Boulder, Wy - United States

amazing work Lianne. and equall is the poetry. f/v/g

Lianne Schneider replied:

Thank you so much Edward - that just means a great deal to me. It's odd how things come together...the poem was inspired just by the word Miserere, then I heard the song and then decided to create an image to bring it to life. So I'm glad you think it worked! Thank you.

Grants Pass, OR - United States

This is such a powerfully emotional work Lianne! -- as are most of yours... You are such a jewel and your wonderful works reflect the sparkle of your soul! This is absolutely exquisite and the meanings hidden within it could not be contained in a mere comment, but a book could be written to describe its depths. Well done my friend! v/f of course!

Lianne Schneider replied:

I'm totally at a loss for words to reply to that grace-filled comment. You honor me...and I'm so touched by this very lovely comment, my friend. xo

Lianne Schneider replied:

Thank you so much Tisha - and for your very generous gesture in the discussion group. That means more to me than I can say.

Gary, IN - United States

It is so beautiful poem and wonderful work, Lianne.. Your poem is so gentle and is embracing the sorrow as human beings.. so vulnerable and weak creatures .. Even it turns to suffer to have a wish or a desire, because more we want, we became to realize that we are just the pitiful existence. The only we got is the desire... the desire ..... dreaming beautiful things..that's only we can do...Thank you for sharing your wonderful works..I had great time being with them...f/v. And I hope you know that I am always thankful for your deep thoughtful and kind comments on my works, Lianne.Thank you. Have a sweet evening......Mihyoun.

Lianne Schneider replied:

Your comment is so lovely and incredibly gracious Mihyoun...I'm touched beyond words. For you to take the time to really react, to read the poetry, to comment at length on such a piece means more to me than I can say. Thank you.

Lianne Schneider replied:

What a fabulously lovely thing to say Dagmar. My apologies for taking so long to say thank you!!

Bilbao, Vi - Spain

Dear Lianne....it may be that sometimes the words we hear hav been written for us, through us, and from us, and not a sound was uttered, not a dancing vowell pronounced. This is the case. Besides the image that is so fantastically crafted, so dramatically created....so beautiful, there is a meaning. A symbology that I understand.In my fashion. She is about to stabb a shadow, for no flesh is there to love now, and this short sword rather than a dagger, is like that word Love, coming from then core of her intellect, sharp and cutting, for Love can cut away to pieces pretentions and plans, can eat Life as well ad give it...and she knows it. So she is there ritualistically ready to perform, to stab the Shadow of Death. So the gloomy moood, the revolving and wild waves, the tense and almost decaying light. What does it mean as a whole?...I leave it there..wish anyone to ponder about it? Hugs for your Lianne. Rosa(for sure V&F)

Lianne Schneider replied:

I love it when you do your interpretation of my work dear Rosa. That's what art should do - evoke a thoughtful response. And I'm happy that it is a bit different than the poem I put with it because it says it speaks to YOU - and that's important to me. Thank you more than I can say dear Rosa.

Bronx, NY - United States

Hi Lianne! I came back to reread that wonderful poem... I love the part where you say: "real love is never washed, never lost"; I also listen on youtube that wonderful "Miserere" song of Andrea Bocelli that you suggested; although it is in Italian, I greatly enjoy it and think it is a beautiful song. I love your art, Lianne!

What a compliment Nicole and I'm so very honored by that lovely comment. It just means more to me than I can say! Thank you so much.

Lianne Schneider replied:

You couldn't pay me a higher compliment Sharon because the poetry is far more important to me than the art here...and came first. But I'm so touched that you find them well paired and that both speak to you in some deep way. That means more to me than I can say. Thank you.

Deep and emotional...

Smithfield, VA - United States

Lianne, This is awesome, to say the least. The prose (or song lyrics) is deeply meaningful. Thanks for giving us the opportunity not only to see this marvelous image, but to also red the words & then you have provided us with the link to hear the actual music. Thanks very much for your kind comments about my Southwestern painting with the blue horse. It has been on FAA for quite some time. However, I simply moved the image from one of the other pages to the first page. In any case, thank you. You have inspired me greatly.

Lianne Schneider replied:

No Anne - the words are my own poetry - the song is something completely separate. But I so appreciate that you take the time to actually read through it and to comment with such insight and care. You can't imagine how much that means! And I can't thank you enough for it!

Title

Miserere

Artist

Lianne Schneider

Medium

Digital Art - Digital Painting/photographic Art

Description

Miserere and Benedicere are the Latin words for either the simple infinitive or the imperative of "have mercy" and "bless" respectively.


The words below are not the lyrics to the song by the same name (link posted at bottom) but are my own prose-poem about loss, misery and the blessing that can come from even our darkest night.




MISERERE

I am neither saint in this nor worthless sinner -
for all my weeping wretchedness and grief
for all the blame I heap upon your head
I am not faultless in the shattered glass of us.
I loved you then and love you still
without ever having loved you well enough.
Miserere. . .

I am neither rock nor island and yet
at times I feel as remote and as dead
as some deserted volcanic atoll
where the living fire that I once was
has cooled not just to graying ash
but compressed into unmovable stone..
Miserere. . .

I am neither romantic lover nor spiteful hater
bent on feeding my fantasies or stoking my anger.
I may beat my breast in misery at dawn of every day
but my heart whispers another more grateful truth -
listen, listen, everything but love is a lie
and real love is never wasted, never lost.
Miserere. . .benedicere. . .

We are neither of us all dark or all light
though we've borne our shadows without grace.
We've let our inner lamps go dim, and yet,
I know that we have not begun to understand
that where we are is where we're meant to be this day,
that some deep sorrows and deeper joys are inseparable.
Miserere. . .benedicere. . .

We are neither our past nor our future -
Our past is in ruins, a Pompeii of rubble,
the future but a cruel chimera of wishful dreams.
We have, in the end, only this present in which to love,
to be all that we can be and be true to ourselves
and in this way only bring peace to each other.
Benedicere. . .

Please enjoy the incredible voices of Andrea Bocelli and John Mills in an amazing performance of the song "Miserere" (from which I took the title of my own piece) written by Zucchero Fornaciari and Bono at
