Poetry is the journey of the sea animal living on land, wanting to fly in the air. Poetry is a search for syllables to shoot at the barriers of the unknown and the unknowable. Poetry is a phantom script telling how rainbows are made and why they go away. Poetry is an echo, asking a shadow to dance - Carl Sandburg..........Poetry should be great and unobtrusive, a thing which enters into one's soul, and does not startle it or amaze it with itself, but with its subject - John Keats .........Poetry is the breath and finer spirit of all knowledge - William Wordsworth ..........Poets utter great and wise things which they do not themselves understand - Plato .........No man was ever yet a great poet, without being at the same time a profound philosopher. For poetry is the blossom and the fragrance of all human knowledge, human thoughts, human passions, emotions, language - Samuel Taylor Coleridge .........One demands two things of a poem. Firstly, it must be a well-made verbal object that does honor to the language in which it is written. Secondly, it must say something significant about a reality common to us all, but perceived from a unique perspective. What the poet says has never been said before, but, once he has said it, his readers recognize its validity for themselves - W. H. Auden ...........Poetry is just the evidence of life. If your life is burning well, poetry is just the ash - Leonard Cohen .........There is a pleasure in poetic pains which only poets know - William Cowper .........Genuine poetry can communicate before it is understood -T. S. Eliot ..........Poetry heals the wounds inflicted by reason - Novalis...........He who draws noble delights from sentiments of poetry is a true poet, though he has never written a line in all his life - George Sand .........A poem is never finished, only abandoned - Paul Valery ........A poet is a bird of unearthly excellence, who escapes from his celestial realm arrives in this world warbling. If we do not cherish him, he spreads his wings and flies back into his homeland - Kahlil Gibran.............Poetry should strike the reader as a wording of his own highest thoughts, and appear almost a remembrance - John Keats..........To be a poet is a condition, not a profession - Robert Frost........A poem is true if it hangs together. Information points to something else. A poem points to nothing but itself - E. M. Forster.........Publishing a volume of verse is like dropping a rose petal down the Grand Canyon and waiting for the echo - Don Marquis...........Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion; it is not the expression of personality, but an escape from personality. But, of course, only those who have personality and emotions know what it means to want to escape from these things - T. S. Eliot ..........You can tear a poem apart to see what makes it tick. You're back with the mystery of having been moved by words. The best craftsmanship always leaves holes and gaps so that something that is not in the poem can creep, crawl, flash or thunder in - Dylan Thomas .........Poetry is boned with ideas, nerved and blooded with emotions, all held together by the delicate, tough skin of words - Paul Engle......... There is not a joy the world can give like that it takes away! Lord Byron

Al Salt Greeting Cards


Nadwah - Hong Kong - 26 December 2008


Foresight Art Gallery is pleased to announce the launch of post cards and greeting cards collections which carry photographs of Al Salt City, on the occasion of its nomination as the "City of Jordanian Culture for the year 2008".

These collections are printed on fancy card-board paper where each image has an embossed frame; it's an opportunity to greet/congratulate your relatives, friends and colleagues in an artistic and unique way, as Al Salt is a historic Jordanian city with ancient buildings that go back to the Ottoman era in the 19th century and beginning of the 20th century. In addition to buildings that combine between Arab and European architecture, dating back to the first half of last century.

These greeting cards enable you to write your own greeting or to order the card with the phrase or sentence of your choice in advance, such as the recipients or sender's name or company name.

Each set of cards is either 12 or 24, including envelopes. They are packed in a box and wrapped with a plastic cover.

Each greeting card is 15x21 cm, made up of two sides folded in the middle, where each face is made up of two parts; the first part of the first face is centered by a 6x9 cm image of Salt with a hollow embossed black or white frame.

On the other side, those greeting cards contain a short introduction on Al Salt City in Arabic and English, with a phrase that refers to Al Salt as "the city of Jordanian Culture for the year 2008", along with the name of the area and site of the photograph on the card.

As for including your logo or a certain phrase to the card from the inside, we have to be notified in advance with the number of cards desired to provide you with an offer with the price list.

Al Salt cards collection is just the beginning of a series of other Jordanian areas and cities, in addition to paintings by Jordanian and Arab artists, as well as other photography cards that include artistic images of various themes.

Please find attached a list of prices according to each collection; you can also view the post cards and greeting cards on our website and order any of them by contacting Ms. Reem Hourani on the numbers or email below.
