abstract, the poem and the painting!!




i am but a speck on the floor
walk by and you will miss me
grand towers rise
to the copper sky
of sunset
and icons watch
unblinking
while i breathe the city dust
and dirt
and spit the phlegm of despair at your feet .




This is the 99th Magpie tale from Tess, since i am trying to paint a picture a day this is also day 8 of that challenge!!!
Boy what was i thinking!! ha ha!!
Do go over and see what everyone else is up to.

  3. Excellent poem! I love this part especially:

    "grand towers rise
    to the copper sky
    of sunset"

    Good luck with completing a painting a day; THAT is ambitious indeed. I can't wait to scroll down and give them a look. I also paint.
