Poetry: Choosing a Frame


Choosing A Frame


There is an art to it,
choosing a frame, that
bit of wood, colored or not,
that has the power

to make a picture sing with glory,
or fade into obscurity,
and in choosing that frame, you choose
to see

or not.

=====================

The picture was taken in Venice, Italy. You can click on it for a larger version.

Short, sweet, simple but true! Love the colours of those frames, Tom.
