Post 91: Rough Draft, Portrait of a Young Model

LIFE DRAWING arms around herself

To draw the model
beyond  glitz
and bawdy lies
there is a world
not in disguise.

It’s sophisticated
never demeaning or rude.
Everyone knows
artists draw the nude.

We paint and sketch,
a covey of characters and friends
lost in our thoughts,
the 20-something model twists and bends.

The curves at her elbow
the softness of her limbs,
I hope I can get this gesture right
before the light dims.

To live beyond the fakery
to create more than a façade
imaginative art and poetry
is how artists deal with the odd.

I'm writing. I haven't been on my blog much, so please forgive the lack of updates. I'm doing art. My life is dedicated to any cause that helps the planet and is good for children and other living beings. Don't get me started on politics because it won't be pretty. Humor helps. Check y'all later.
