If I Knew Picasso

If I knew Picasso,
I’d say Pablo come and see.
Bring your canvass here,
And capture this beauty. 

I’d ask him as he painted,
The things he’s thinking of.
If painting brought him peace,
As he paints a painted love.

I‘d watch as he stroked,
The canvass from his soul.
It would leave me in awe,
If I knew Picasso.

    Interesting! Like you, I would like to go back in time and talk to some of the people I have read about or been introduced to through their accomplishments.

    Raul, every so often i am going to choose a poet, and browse through their catalogue of works, it's your turn today. First click and i find this one, it's just like Picasso's works, a Masterpiece. I could vision him walking over to you at your request, and you being in awe at his amazing talent, i like it a lot, James
