Vernissage – grand opening of an art exhibition; attended, much too often, by fleeting crowds not nearly as attracted by the artworks exhibited as by the spotlights on the event… and on their presence.

Vernissage (with moths)


Futilities, vaguely scattered upon the page in winds of dispersal.

Nothing, really;

They hardly scratch the surface, with minute flights
between a fly’s alacrity around some tasty colour
and a moth’s disorientation, in dashes of dust on canvas
of spotlights opening an exhibition of glitz…

Then, they turn the page
and fall off the wind, in gasps of awe;
and dash on to the next exhibition, with alacritous specks
that are, overall, similar to the previous, except, perhaps, in colour.

Nothing, really…

… But this intimate and diversely winged success in the expression on the artist’s face
- as he considers the page, amidst the echoes of the vernissage, vaguely scattered
in the dust of the removal of the canvases.

You make some very good points in your verses here Alexandra. Thank you for sharing your gifts. Love and best wishes to you,

Reviewed by Kate Burnside 9/14/2008
Yes, Alexandra, I think you capture this most delicately and beautifully. It is with regret that I deem this to be nearly always true. I find myself that I quickly get to saturation point with art exhibitions and am unable to do each exhibit justice. If possible, it is so much better just to take one artist's work at a time, or one room. All too often, I feel that I have come away with the dust of beautiful moths on my fingertips and with their fluttering of wings in my mind. I long to set them free... It is "getting the point" of each piece that perhaps liberates them - yet we scarcely give them a moment's true notice to breathe. Love the soul in this write. Were we all "flies on the wall", we might serve the gift of artists better. Love, Kate xx
