a tale of tails, tenacity, and tedium, as told by me, usually barefoot and bellowing

The Mag 155

Oh, my impatient bones have caused me trouble. The Mag is up.  Join in the fun there and here too.

Art by Joseph Lorruso

The battle of the caffeines
Was a scary tale
Coffee or soda
Who wins?
Hard to tell.
The condiments were talking
About the view
No one needed seasoning
Enough spice here 
For me and you.
The hands explored the moment
From top to almost tail
There was no spot
Left untouched
In this meeting 
Of the pales.

The end remains yours
To decide
The moment 
Hangs in time
Forever 
On the canvas
Forever 
On the mind. 
Linking with Magpie Tales.

You have a new header, I like it. I also like your poem and how you concentrated on every detail of the art.

That was great. Playful and it read so well.

Brian Miller said...

haha...fun read...coffee wins...hands down...or up...or on...or...

Irene said...

I like how you zeroed in on the details. That was not an obvious thing to do. Are you taking lessons? xox

Laurie Kolp said...

Love your attention to the detail!

Hedgi said...

Oh, I love it, I love it, that's wonderful!

Michaele said...

You nailed this one- fantastic prose!

Perhaps the drink is absinthe ?

I like how you took parts of the painting to create this poem.

Little Nell said...

Who knew the condiments had a voice - and such eloquence!

Karen S. said...

Oh yes, all that heavy exploring spiced up a few lines as they huddled together! Lovely poem of sweet love!

Emma Major said...

that works so well breaking up the art like that, such depth of story

I wrote something to go with the picture and then backed off. I began reading things others had written and realized I was WAY over my sometimes "big" head. I am NOT a writer and certainly not a poet. :( Love to write..but poetry leaves me with my face hanging out. I was married to both and like to think I learned something. But...naw...I didn't.

You did great on this. LOVED it. NO nerve to post mine. lol
Hugs,
Mona

Michael said...

Theresa Milstein said...

Interesting dissection of the painting.

Robyn Greenhouse said...

Love how you included attention to so many details. I did notice that coffee cup - I kept wanting to push it further back up on the table!

Josie Two Shoes said...

I love the way you both dissected and connected this one in an excellent composition of photo focus and verse. Very well done Miss Gail! :-)

A neat concept, to divide the painting and to construct tiny chapters. This works well.

Susan Lindquist said...
