Your Art Matters By Chimnese
This morning I picked up the paper,
Usually I read the financial section,
But instead I took a brief moment
To see the who’s who in the cosmopolitan
Of the New York Times,
I must say I have found a lot of things,
Especially on what’s happening
In the world of literature and modern art,
Sculptures and new books being released,
I have spotted that the Jewish Art centre
Is shifting identity,
The Judah L Magnes Museum has
Reopened as the Magnes Collection
Of Jewish Art and life,
And is also now part of the library
University of California, , Berkeley
I am so delighted that art hasn’t died yet,
Those historic monuments can be carried
Through generation after generation,
We stand to know that Art does matter,
That whatever we do in this life,
That our creativity will never
Be outnumbered that Art is timeless.
Smiles by Shail
Gathered from all over
In a glass jar
Happy, nervous, tearful, lopsided
Open, beguiling, sinister, guarded
Icy smiles that never reached the eyes
And warm ones that lit them up always
Smiles that opened doors
Those that shut them close
Smiles like sunshine on a rainy day
Like cool breeze on a hot summer day
Smiles protective like parasols
Others the impetus to face storms
Smiles that brought you to your knees
And those that made you swell with pride
Toothless and naughty
Seductive and haughty
Shy, reaching out
Bold, drawing in
Smiles shine like multi-colored pebbles
In my glass jar
Reminders of milestones
Of life’s journeys.
Love By WyomingDiva
Do you remember
mostly my own
Magical first dates
Hoped for engagement
Fairly tale marriage
Surprising birth of daughter
and adoption by her
true father, my husband.
All of our birthdays.
Even the dogs get
The passing of those
dearly missed and
some not so much.
Cinnamon and brown
permeates our lives.
Relied Upon by Robin
it moves through…
you don’t know what
if you give up
on that fire that relies upon
nothing beyond itself for
