Ode to the Bay of Eloise

She is whipping winds.

washing over my hair, eyes, skin.
Numbingly cold waters,
as if just unfrozen,
spilling into, refreshing
the Bay.

She hosts,

An eroded map
Of webbed and pebbled paths.
Barnacle scattered
Rolling fields of green low tides.
A fisherman’s daydream.
A meeting
Of core and sun.

She is
an awakening,
a renewal,

a provocation of adventure.

Art History

It took me some practice 
to understand art

Everyone sees
but not all compart

Step one
know the subject

Step two 
then to reflect

What is it you see?
what’s its importance?

This may depend on the being
their particular first glance

But history is history
repetition be bound

The word significance
is no doubt to be found

Maybe it’s striking
right under your nose

Otherwise hidden
only time will expose

Riches for wealth
magnitude for prestige

The more art you meet
the sharper an expertise

This I find true
About art, music, humans

The more conscious the study
the more meaning illumines

So this also fitting
that in this art world

My mere 23 years
will have revealed

The best merits are shared
by the greatest of greats

Which is why inside you 
I find old beloved traits

We laugh like my favorites
and love like them too

When I’m 80 and dancing
I’ll be dancing with you
