That Picasso Thing by John Smallshaw

That Picasso thing.

Exciting in its complexity
and when it hits you
its simplicity astounds you
when all around you
people search their
whole lives long
for that
one song
and the heart already knows it

and you’ll know it too when,

A:
it
reverberates
B:
it
concentrates your mind
and
C:
you will find

it in all its complexity yet full of simplicity
totally as if poetically
the waves will crash against your shore
and
what more could we ask for?

One thought on “That Picasso Thing by John Smallshaw

  1. I like this very much – its full of vitality and imagination. The opening observation about complexity and then the revelation of simplicity seems perfect to me as a comment on Picasso.
