World Famous Painting haiku - Paul Cezanne's The Card Players

The Card Players
the artist's brush with
the colours of fame

The Card Players
a concentration locks into
every inch of the canvas

the card players
a delight spreads out
between the fingers

The Card Players
the day's worries diffused
between the fingers

The Card Players
between the fingers
the probability of wealth

The Card Players
the world diffused in
a few cards in the hands

The Card Players
hypnotising the men
in the pictures

The Card Players
caught in the hands
a deep anticipation

The Card Players
every moment of fun
caught in shades

The Card Players

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Your hands lie open in the long fresh grass, --
The finger-points look through like rosy blooms:
Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
