Through New Eyes

Picasso’s work brings new light to a Technicolor black-and-white screen
As a child discovering the egg at Easter it is a welcome surprise among the mundane green
It brings to us the version of the old
Captures the imprisoned and by doing so releases the true meaning
Of life
Of love
Of the hungry black Dog thieving from the table
Of the Child’s first steps in black and blue
Scampering to and fro leaving footprints of realization across the earth’s canvas
A bright black canvas yearning for interruption
And he indulges
Communicating universalized unverbalized feelings with dots and dashes of paint
And once awoken colors take flight
Lofting up into the skies
And see the world through new eyes

Laura Quinn, age 16, a recent visitor to the Nasher Museum
