Reds and Blues

by Samuel Derrick Rosen

This painting of yours
Is pretty abstract
And full of reds
And blues
I saw in it a cat
Sniffing a giant strawberry
A hill with a river
Running across it
And a tree sticking out
In the middle of the water
A ballerina
Missing eyes and a mouth
The mutation of a garden slug
From the concrete to the grass
It captures well
The restless heart
Or is it fickle?
Or both?
