|Kandinsky, Riding Couple, 1906|
Romance is easy to paint,
a debonair bow, flourish of flowers,
dimples either side a besotted smile,
deep blue dappled river, twinkling starlit sky,
and a city with golden spires.
Doesn't hurt to have a prince
and maiden fair upon his lap
atop a stately steed, arms entwined, chins tilted,
lips eager for first kiss.
Reality's composition is a bit more confusing
where gestures, curtsies and flirtations alone
don't charm (at least not anymore)
where life's been stirred with complications -
love's canvas a bit more complex.

This is linked with "Imaginary Garden with Real Toads - The Tuesday Platform" The optional extra for today was to write to a 20th century artist, Wassily Kandinsky.
Also linked with NaPoWriMo 2018.
Kandinsky: Master of the Mystic Arts is an interesting peak into the mind of the artist. B
