happy birthday to frida

one of my favorite artists

thanks for keeping the flowers

and everything else you painted,

so alive.

and in a tiny shop, 

filled with delicate treats

ice cream, cookies, cakes, and sweets

who better to sell these lovely delights

than a shining unicorn-

so brave and full of light?


“there are wild elephants in the country,

and numerous unicorns which are nearly as big,..”

–marco polo

my poem is dedicated

to my very young grandie, v,

who is an amazing artist

with a boundless imagination. 

may you always have

magical unicorns in your life.

love, peaches

the most important thing people did for me was to expose me to new things. – temple grandin

our class went to see

 nick cave’s art exhibit

up close and personal

sound suits

colors

swirls

dancing

textures

fun

then made

their own accessories

in his style

and

learned so much

about art having no boundaries

 how things can look and sound and feel

art can be found in all kinds of places

and

most of all

that each of them are artists in their own right.

local skater boy

drives around

with his polar bear way up top

just like the north pole

i see him all over town

and

it makes everyone

who crosses paths with him

smile and turn or cheer or shake their heads

no one fails to react in some way

good or bad

isn’t that what the best art is meant to do?

the entertainment is in the presentation.
