art and love

I went to the art gallery for I love to meander in the solitude often, alone with the beautiful art it brings me so much peace and inspiration in my city the art gallery is a vast place with many rooms and nooks and places to sit, gaze and rest but besides the amazing paintings and sculptures I am seeking one particular man who I have seen previously meandering also but, I have no idea if he will be here today I have seen him enchanted with the art just as I am standing and pondering and I imagine finding him gazing at a painting oh, what lovely art I will say to him in a hushed and hopefully sexy voice though, when I see him I cannot speak I cannot utter a single word for I am entranced but, he looks down at me for he is tall and I give him my best come hither look and I am drowning in his dark fathomless eyes oh, I will hold their depth in my heart forever and my thoughts are crashing like the waves of a thousand oceans then, he speaks oh, that deep musical voice touches my soul I have seen you here before he says then, he smiles and I am in a ray of sunshine and my world is a twirling out of control coffee ? he asks and my heart is playing a violin symphony yes, I say and smile at him and that is how our love begins ______________________ June 16, 2021 Poetry/Narrative/art and love Copyright Protected, ID 06-1363-791-16 All Rights Reserved, 2021, Constance La France Written for the Standard contest, All Yours (Jun 17) sponsor, Brian Strand, Judged 06/17/2021 First Place

And that one more reason why art is important. It is love itself and it unites people, waiting for the incredible to happen ...

A poetry creates, or should at least, a picture, and a fine one, like this, a moving picture, moving in more sense than one... congrats for a win

Constance, this reads like a scene from a movie. Your words had me enthralled. Art & Love go together don't they? There's something about the maze of many rooms, nooks and crannies in a gallery that drip inspiration, peace and love within the silence. I sense a Part II somewhere.

Gary, thank you so much for your comment and compliment on my poem, part two would be that we married but sadly Part 3 would be that I lost my true love to a car accident and find him in a name engraved. But, I still love the art gallery with its many rooms, nooks and crannies, peace _Constance
