Magpie 307

Cesar Santos

heading to art class
palette in hand
I am the model ~
buff, svelte and tan.

Inviting the novice
professionals too
genre of painting ~
I don't have a clue.

Clothes are no option
the subject is nudes
red-faced and squirming ~
don't be such prudes.

Tonight we paint daring
whatever we choose
abstract, impression ~
let me be your muse.


  1. Red-faced and squirming sums it up. Very nice.

  2. Dearest Helen,
    Haha, your little 'cheeky' photo on my sideline made me laugh! It is a great poem and so well phrased about the feeling when facing such a subject.
    Indeed, when she is young, beautiful and svelte; what's the reason for being prude?!
    Hugs and happy weekend.

  3. Tee hee hee!! Very cheeky poem Helen... I really enjoyed reading this. :-)
