Poetry and painting

Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.—Leonardo da Vinci

I’ve seen this quote about the place, but I’m not sure I agree with da Vinci. A poem with great images can be ‘seen’, and a painting that captures a mood or moment well can definitely be felt. Maybe that’s why I’m drawn to both poetry and paintings.
