Indelible ink

Indelible ink

Line tone and colour
           what my art is about
shapes that dance
           on the canvas
and that incite the eye
           to dance

colours like words
           have their character
cannot be faked
           hence the expression
true colours
           hence the expression
true love
           love that cannot be faked

no pretence
           no deception
love writ
           in indelible ink
love that binds
           in a permanent bond

under the Brandenberg
           crossing the Rialto
strolling through the Tuileries
           or crossing Maidan Square
that’s the shape of it
           and it cannot be faked
