The art of love

Love, John Lyons (40 x 40 cm, oil on canvas)

The art of love

Two figures
           drained of colour
sepia with just a hint
           of blue

Sometimes more
           is less
sometimes less
           is more

Art is evocation
           it suggests :
when it seeks to impose
           it overpowers

in that way
           art resembles
           and love

in which
and gentleness
           are its strengths

John Lyons
