ARTIST SPOTS AN ARTIST a poem by (me!) sandra,tvgp

ORIGINAL POST 02/19/2011: inspired by charlotte severin's "spotted horses" painting
currently displayed at towne center books, downtown pleasanton:


look at you
my human masterpiece
making memories manifest

an instinct here
an impulse there
two hands that will not rest

this world -your empty canvas
to show -who knows
what your eyes see

living creatures black n' white
spotted so aesthetically

earthly colors
human hands
artist's instinct, artist's eye

living creatures, drawn & painted
-who knows
how many times

back then, write now, into forever
art is instinct, art is why.

Isn't it fun writing poems based on art? Nicely, done, and I love the "spotted" pun.
