Art and literature are inseparable and complimentary.

Matisse's sensuousness of a single line is as emersive

as reading a great book. 

Matisse and I

Last night I began a joyful read

A book I'd read many times before

I turned its pages in gentle need

Of prolongation of the plot in store


Savouring every punctuation mark

Phrase and verb  my eyes caress

It's pages mirror the fluid stroke

Of a woman by Henri Matisse 


Haunted by the nagging known

That every page is another step 

To closure of this wondrous tome

I pause to savour a sensuous swept

Artistry of any sort brings great pleasure and is worth savoring slowly.

I can feel the reader in me doing the same, pausing to admire every line and pauses. This is beautiful, truly. :)
