Influence of Chagall

INFLUENCE OF CHAGALL

Cradle garden faithfully, free her petals. 
 Pluck bouquet and playfully tend her, kiss her.
  Praise her beauty soulfully - stem and fragrance.
                                                  ~ Whirligig love her.

Sapphic Stanza with a Jux Poetry Contest
Sponsor: Craig Cornish

*Marc Chagall would often paint his wife flying
like a kite or balloon while he held her hand

Oh, I want to eat this poem with cream! I read it, then looked up some of chagall’s work (I wasn’t familiar) then read it again and you just captured the spirit so perfectly for me. I could kiss you for “whirligig love her”! Awesome Kim!

I expected a picture. I can't post pictures because I refuse to pay again my subscription. Not that it matters really. Liked your poem. Best of luck.

I love Chagall. And his kite-flying, balloon-waving woman. But not bright enough colors to satisfy me completely. Nice one, my friend.

Yes, we must delight ourselves in many artists...our colors never complete.
