Like Works Of Art - Poem by Julia Klimenova

People are works of art.
I've known some human sculptures:
Elegant, cold, detached,
Closed in upon themselves.
Others are paintings. These
Need a beholder. Vainly
Pose to be looked upon.
Eye-to-eye dialogue.
Those who are music-like
Want no big audience, playing
Soul-to-soul melody,
Harmony shared with few.
All of them are unique
And - as types - universal,
Yet some just baffle me,
Books in a foreign tongue.

    I like the range of analyses here, and the rich language with which you communicate them, Julia. Yep, this kaleidoscope looks like what I know to be human nature. But Julia, I feel you could develop this even further. But it is up to you. Enjoyable reading. With warmth, Gina. (Report) Reply
