Smudge – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

Sunset – 5 Lines





They were all there, Durer, Monet, Picasso
and a host of others who carefully
constructed random reflections on canvas,
but God strode in and stole the show with
one esoteric smudge across the sky.

  5. Durer exclaimed . .
    “How much more must I ensure?!”
    But Pablo Picasso was most philosophical
    about it all.
    Monet just chose to drown his sorrows
    in Lilly Pond, of which he was very fond 😎
