Art By A Two Year Old


Honey bear jar lid taken off
Poured carefully over the carpet
With pink and white animal cookies
Floating in it
Along with a couple computer disks
And a blankie carefully surrounding
The perfect creation.

    Truly an enjoyable glimpse. There is more than one way of painting a picture as your poem and your creation testifies. Even the great Picasso said that art is simply a happy accident. (Report) Reply

    Sometimes, the poetry just makes you smile. The images are so vivid you feel like printing out the picture drawn in your mind. This is fresh, original, and charming.

    Thank you for the read, you de-stressed me a bit just by absorbing your few words as set forth in Art By A Two Year Old.

    Thank you,

    This really made me smile! I have three kids...all well past this stage but this does bring back memories! I have to say it really shows what a loving mother you must be to appriciate the ''art'' in that mess rather than get angry. Very sweet poem. Sincerely, Mary (Report) Reply

    I have no children of my own but i have worked with children, though not that young, and i love to see their imagination at work. Steve (Report) Reply

    I especially got a thrill from recognising the jar! But it just gets better as it goes along. A moment of chagrin turned into an appreciation of 'performance art'! Still, I'm glad to experience it vicariously, not having to clean it up. Just a terrific poem, the complexity of life encapsulated in so few words. Loved it. Loved the love it shows. (Report) Reply

    This is true of many young children I know- something that can be a mess can also be interpreted as a masterpiece. Nice job. Keep up the good work :) (Report) Reply
