Art

Stared at the thing
For many a minute
Deciphering!
Deciphering!

Seemed to stare back
Then looked away
Wondering!
Wondering!

For the life of me
Couldn't figure it out
Baffling!
Baffling!

Not a clue what it was
But liked staring at it
That thing!
That thing!

You have made me laugh, thank you.

Yes, you're so right. You don't need to know what it represents as long as you like it! That's what nonrepresentational art is all about!

Artistically,

lol...I really enjoyed this. I have felt this many times at art museums...drawn to a certain work like a magnet, but not able to figure out why! This is the magic and power of art. Great read!

I also loved the lighthearted rhythm of your poem. :~)

A wonderful way to describe responses to many art pieces. I like it! I know I don't need to know why I like something to know that I do. Thanks.

some "modern" art affects me in the same way. What the hell is that? But I can't take my eyes off of it.
