Bohemian Gathering Place

Gathering Place

(c)2012 Bob Atkinson

find a place where you can go
to see those bodies of like mind
those who, as you, live in thought
which creates the art so fine

artistic words and sculptures
brush stroked canvas portraits
those things we all love to hate
created from nothingness
by strong internal mind forces

not so easy to arrive
at the station they all go
you must be famous or getting there
or you'll get that old cold shoulder

sensing feelings in the room
those bohemians who agitate
with brush and pen and clay to form
art with fine skilled graces

then there are those who have
adopted the written word
as their choice for display of
artistic or evil thoughts absurd

for political agitation
if that is what they seek
trying to get across those precepts
they hold and loudly speak

so, their ways fit into
attitudes of this group of saints
becomes a cause given to much thought
which can drive artistic creation

create that which was before
but a blank page or canvas
or ball of clay laid on the floor
now formed to judges satisfaction
