Poem: Matisse was Right

Matisse was Right

Matisse was right.
Creativity requires courage.

Matisse was right.
But only partially.

Pretty much everything today requires courage
except hiding, pretending and lies.

About this poem

I wasn’t going to write a second poem this morning. I was already at peace from the first one. Then I stumbled on this picture I forgot I had taken. And the poem lept out.

It can be like that sometimes.
