Art History

The sunset across the sound
and over the snowy rocks
was a study in art history
a parade of techniques and styles
first came Watercolor
pastels splashed across the sky
dripping soft and sentimental
next, the oils were brought in
and the world became an Impression
of itself with imprecise splotches
that looked like ripples of water
from afar, but closer
they were individual Pixels
alternating orange white blue
orange white blue
stretching into a Surreal phase
with shadows becoming
strange creatures of the sea
that morphed into larger Cubes
blocks of bright neon
bold and powerful
Modernism at its most mesmerizing
until finally the whole canvas
became a single color
and the earth entered its Blue Period
