Sit Down LIke Matisse

SIT DOWN LIKE MATISSE 


Sit down like Matisse 
with coloured paper and scissors 
and cut a red Eastern poppy - 
papaver orientale! 

Stare at goldfish in a bowl, 
consider your life in art; 
what it's done for your soul: 
luxe, calme et volupte.

    I like this idea, but would like it much better if I could understand the last lines. Congrats on the selection. Dave

    Loved both poems for their originality and imagery - the first verse, in particular of 'Sit down like Matisse' - my favourite artist!
