“A life drawing in a moonlit boudoir” | Sydney Poet David Landgrebe

10 Apr

A life drawing in a moonlit boudoir,
bohemian shadows shroud
her soft skin swollen in chiaroscuro,
poised swanlike,
with velveteen tone,
and vanishing curves,
eclipsed by the artists easel.

    Charles Dudley Warner says: “A great artist can paint a great picture on a small canvas.”
    & I say you’ve borrowed Pikasso’s brush to paint such a piece using nothing but warm words…

    I had to read this one several times and allow the words to just roll from my tongue. I absolutely love it!

    Beautifully succinct words to match a lovely life drawing. I love the atmosphere of words and image.
