Poem #7 – 11th March 2014

Still Life’s Like That

 

I try to sketch today with pen and pencil

But my hand does not respond to what I see.

The shadow shading’s just a shade too dark,

And the limbs and trunk look lifeless on this tree.

 

I cannot master what is termed perspective.

My 2-D picture’s not at all exciting.

Self-criticism soon becomes invective,

So with pen and pencil I’ll just stick to writing.
