Leaving the Tate

Rating: 4.6

Coming out with your clutch of postcards
in a Tate gallery bag and another clutch
of images packed into your head you pause
on the steps to look across the river

and there's a new one: light bright buildings,

I'm making over $13k a month working part time. I kept hearing other people tell me how much money they can make online so I decided to look into it. Well, it was all true and has totally changed my life. This is what I do. HERE ?? Job62.com

Art multiplies itself. Art's whatever you choose to frame.............how truest! Congratulations on being chosen for so many times last 8 June and today. The 8 June 2019. A very keen observation on any landscape the poetess saw. Another museum? Then we can read another Masterpiece here. Any museum will do, the poetess does it! Her observational ability is true brilliant, that's why the poem reads like a Masterpiece.

Now swing to the left, and take in plane-trees bobbled with seeds, and that brick building, and a red bus...Cut it off just there, by the lamp-post. Leave the scaffolding in a very fine poem. tony

The last line quite succinctly sums the poem up nicely. Art really is the eye of the beholder.

madly pure Pre-Raphaelite sky, perhaps, sheer blue apart from the white plumes rushing up it (today, that is, April. Another day would be different....beautiful poetic expression....great artistic poem an artistic mind lives not in a canvas merely, it needs a lot of experience to make thousands of it which whirling like the summer stormy wind in creative mind......10++
