He stood
on the platform
in the center of the room
amongst
throw pillows
strewn, here
there
one corner to the next
contrasting
sizes
shapes

As he removed
his
white
Luxury- Hotel-Looking
robe
the instructor
informed him she brought
props and…..

various hats to wear
play with….

his back
facing
my front
from my
position

legs spread
wide

knees – locked
deliberate

he slowly
bent
at the waist

grabbing

the bright orange
blaze knit
hunting
cap….
and pulled it down
securely upon his
crown
over his ears
light brown
buzzed-cut hair

cause
and
color

kneeling
he reached for and picked up
a long silver metal rod,
a pole
placing it behind
his neck he
extended his arms
out and along its length……

I see
da Vinci’s “Vitruvian Man”
in my mind’s
eye….He
believing the workings of the
human body to be an analogy
for the workings of the universe

I just want to play
with
color

but think I
understand….

effect
and
texture

with a
blank, almost virgin expression
across his face
he stared into space

he was no virgin
and I…..
suspected the space
he was within
was one he
delighted
in

Hastily
we
begin

drawing
painting
sketching

or
pretending

to know
what it was
we are
doing and
why…

well really
only
I

who feigned
in this domain…

The others
four told
formally trained…

whereas….I

busied my hands

fingers tinged
stained

glancing up….
every now
then

and
again..

back to my pallette…..

imagining
I am in the process
of conceiving
a
masterpiece….

compelling the creation
of

Me……

precisely….

I am an
observer and
student

a
novice
poet
painter

I’m a little girl
growing….a bit more
at forty-four

each day
chaste
and
brilliant…..

I am delighted and
inspired…..
