“It’s amazing.” Stella whispered. The Gallery was quiet and she was saying it more to herself than anybody else. This year’s theme was ‘Life’ and the space was full of artistic interpretations. Somehow the black & white canvas caught Stella’s imagination. She sat down to be absorbed by it for longer. Eventually she took her notebook out of her cream handbag & started to scribble, emptying her head of every thought.
Life in liquid
a wet, red mouth.
Held until breath
can no longer find
Thrust forward the water
is projected, escaping
splashing and forming droplets,
the artistic random dance of fluid motion.
shared like promises,
luscious intimacy caught by the camera’s lens.
Yielding to external pressure
the water escapes and falls onto skin.
Dripping softly down to their feet,
Beyond the frame of this Artwork.
Stella replaced the lid on her pen and tucked her notebook back into her bag. Slowly she got up and moved onto the next piece of art.
