His signature

He paced regally, the zenith of the arch
Beautiful as a greek god, an artist’s dream
Gazing at infinity, oblivious to the tourists’ march
Magnificently quiet, sans whisper or scream
Clad in fine, dark leather, disdainful his stride
Animated his demeanor, exuding vitality and verve
His stare intense, furious like the tide
Life throbbing in his every sinewy nerve

Defiant his swagger, like a stallion’s-untame
Repeatedly he reined his mane-uncontained
Mounting with easy grace, he crowned the scarlet frame
Supremely in balance, in a moment time-unstained
Like an acrobat’s, mesmerising, his back-flip
Like a shooting star, or a missile misguided –
he plunged, vanishing into a statistical blip.
Cars blazed noisily past the bridge, so prided

    Not related to this post, but reg. your latest one on youdraw: how do you come up with the image? Is there a master copy that you try to emulate, or is it something you think and come up with?

    I am not yet good enough/do not have enough acquired skill & exposure to make things up in drawing. So yeah, I need the actual object or it’s image to draw.
    I do aim to capture a certain mood in the drawing, and that is the reason I draw.

    Mridul, did you mean the poem, or the discussion on drawing?
    My poem is based on the movie “The Bridge” that I watched recently. See, for instance: http://fest06.sffs.org/films/film_details.php?id=13
    The discussion on drawing is regarding my drawings on youdraw.com. You can follow the “My youdraw area” link on the left hand panel to check them out if interested.
