“ART!” a poem, dedicated to Randy and Annie who have come to visit from “across the seas!” July 30, 2019 (Tuesday)
We’re-all amazing WORKS of ART, like paintings in the frame,
&-as-with-paintings, we-have-our-preferences! (pause) Sometimes, they-aren’t-the same!
Some-paintings, considered-“fine-art,” you-look-at-and-say: “Ugh,”
And-OTHERS, you-just-got-ta-have, although-friends-say: “It’s-a-bug!”
But, YOU-say: “NO! (pause) It’s-a-beautiful (pause) sunset-in-Ber-muda,”
And some of us are Christian,* while others love The Buddha!**
Some paintings-just-LOVE to-be-together-as-a-pair,
While-others engage in orgies, (pause) mass-exhibitions in-the-night-air!***
Yes, we-are fine WORKS of ART, painted-by-a-mysterious-hand!
Some of us gather a lot of dust, and some don’t under-stand,
Why-more-folks-are-not-interested – in checking-out their dis-play,
So, some wish they had been painted – perhaps some other way!
Yet-we-are-still-all “FINE ART,” different-styles-textures-[and]-sizes!
I know some that hang in huge galleries, having won International prizes,
And have been credit-ed to-“great”-“artists,” people-who-have-died!
Many paintings simply “run!” Suffering-sadness, they-have-cried!
Yet, whether-happy-sad-alone-or-together, each work is [quite] unique,
And every art-piece-is-beautiful, with “strong” points and-some-weak!
So, hang with pride, my artful friends and we’ll all get along,
We-re-also each a-song!
