“Today over at Poetic Asides, Robert Lee Brewer asks us to complete this title and write your poem.
“The Art Of_____________”
Think of an art (process) or a work of art as an inspiration and give Robert’s prompt a slight twist!
A circle of intense light glows,
almost too bright for
a night life painting.
Are there truly allusions
to The Last Supper, as some
claim? In center of circle,
a long-haired figure stands
surrounded by twelve people.
At opposite end of street,
a cross hangs in shadow. We
do not know what Vincent
intended, but the illuminated
café stands vividly under
an equally vivid blue sky,
whose stars appears as daisies.
Depth trails to an inky darkness
an unlit street, where you cannot
see what might be taking place.
