French scenes ~~ a Poem for "Artistic Interpretation "

Artistic Interpretation
Blue Ridge Mountains reminds one of
Best of master's--elements there
Mountains in the background, looming
Mont Sainte Victoire, Provence love
Trees in the foreground standing guard
European Cypress trees, tall
What artists come to mind for you
A small hint, two loved abstraction
Renowned American artist
And the other was very French
_ _ _ _ _ 

This is the very French:

If you like art then go to Europe. We found this Cézanne original in the Lautrec Museum in Albi, France. It is by Paul Cézanne (1839 to 1906) and yes, he was pretty quirky. (Cézanne Wikipedia link)

For more of our trek to the Albi click here.

Tuesday Platform Poem ~~ Buy Low

Buy low

Fortune said to me
buy low and sell high
That's where the money
is, days of towers
Or marry one. rich
She'll roll you till death
or He'll set you free
Free from debt till death
Towers' wild life ends
Marriages over
At death do you part 
with your worldly goods
Death, cookie's crumbled
Then paper's not worth
its ink.  Promises
never fulfilled, schluss**

    Previously posted on JIM'S LITTLE PHOTO AND POEM PLACE on October 29, 2009

    Impish Elusive Nothings
    a wordless little poem

    Words eluded me today
    for that I will simply write
    tomorrow or yesterday.

    Meter here abandon care
    a bit of nonsense today
    without those words nothing's here.

    Rhyme it surely I can do
    missing words not a problem
    I do this lark just for you.

    NaPoWriMo 2017, Day 30, a Poem, Particle-wave dualism?

    College physics
    College physics was old fashioned,
    Waves were not particles back then
    Electricity was DC
    or AC.  And magnetism
    Dropped the course before it was reached
    Finding the charge on a plate, huh?
    But it is possible that math
    likes to treat waves that way
    The math works but you'll never
    Even one electron from the
    radio wave coming at you
    Don't let them tell you otherwise
    Radio waves particles not
    They will go through a pane of glass
    But never a copper bucket
    Magnetism particles not 
    Industry today demands, more
    than ever, a man with a good
    mathematical foundation
