art imitates life

 

 
the painter died at seventy
he never was well known
but since the day he last drew air
his prominence has grown
.
for when the grinning reaper
felt the need to steal his breath
his compositions came to life
to eulogize his death
.
the ship upon the rolling sea
indeed begins to roll
two lovers walking in the rain
make wavelets as they stroll
.
the poppies in the dying sun
now tremble in the breeze
while tawny leaves abandon
summer homes they'd built in trees
.
a kitten, fur, electric
has a whisker with a twitch
the hula girl's in motion
with a scratch she had to itch
.
but take a look at this one
you would miss it if you blink
self portrait of the artist
as he gives a little wink
