Abstracts in the Museum

Updated on February 21, 2013

A visit to the museum is good for the soul

It becomes a time to absorb history's colors

Become part of the painting that is the regression of time

I am a fan of the abstracts

Not the paintings featuring haphazard brush strokes and mixed media

But the people; Yes, they are the real exhibit

Each person walking to and fro

Pausing to stare at another's vision

Men and women talk with each other

In hushed whispers as if they share some secret revelation

They nod and move on; their faces somber as if attending a funeral

The air is hushed and only the sound of rustling paper can be heard

As the visitors fold paper programs and stuff them into pockets

I wish people could see the exhibit set before me

Individual works of art; the masterpiece that is diversity

The colors of life splashed on a 3-D canvas.

      I really like this one. The title leads us to think of the artworks, but you are viewing a work in progress, the art viewers themselves. That makes it very interesting.
