Picasso's Last Thoughts

Beyond midnight, blades of moonlight cut the room

as sips of sangria scissor sobriety,

and life begins to recede, dissolving like watercolour,

as stars pour liquid light into this crystal chateau.


Who could forget a life such as mine?

I sculpted my memories, crafting cubist thoughts,

and each road travelled, each wrong turn taken,

blurred the liquid lines and melded, moulding my art.


Small hours paint me midnight blue tranquil,

stilling the sudden stutter of my surreal heart,

though morning's jaundiced light will etch me -

a still life, sketched in bile-yellow.

    trying again To the queen of alliteration, I salute you once again for clever melding of Picasso with watercolor, cubism and light, -to give us a reflection so unique in its introspection that it merits a fresh look at this thought-provoking artist, who so infused his time with new ways of seeing, thinking and commenting. Like him, you give us new insight into your own mind as well. Was going to send you a personal message, but alas, I have forgotten how to do that, too. :-( -Dean

    wowowowow. Like I said in my blog, you blew me away with this one. I am not always a fan of free verse, but when it's done THIS way, I really dig it. Congratulations, dear!

    I came looking for two of your poems on art that you mentioned earlier, and found this along the way. I love the idea of "last thoughts" and the way you've woven color into the work. A beautiful piece about a difficult man... Jack

    I just love your writing style, Charlotte. No one could describe such a scene as well as you have here! Your imagery is always so creative and haunting.

    Awesome to see a new piece from you! Your use of colors as emotions in this piece were powerfully done. "Sangria scissor sobriety"...damn.
