Written for:  Carpe Diem #1242 –  Rhythm:  Joie de Vivre by Robert Delaunay

Robert Delaunay (1885 – 1941) was a French artist who, with his wife Sonia Delaunay and others, cofounded the Orphism art movement, noted for its use of strong colors and geometric shapes. His later works were more abstract, reminiscent of Paul Klee. His key influence related to bold use of color and a clear love of experimentation with both depth and tone.

shifting shapes
colors like the rainbow

Here is my attempt:

eyes of the world
primary colors widen
they are watching you

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.

    How did you manage to put primary colors together with such a creepy stalker vibe? 🙂

    Seriously, I hate this for children. I wish they never had to find out that the world is eager for them to fail.
