quo vadis?

Little fingers guide the pen
easily over the vellum wild
crafting there Picasso’s wish
to draw as simply a child.

From his memory he invokes
the scene in the room below
a man, his guitar, a table and plant
and a picture frame just so.

So clean, so true is the miracle
we all know what this is:
a moment that could define the now
or a moment lost in wishes.
