Life's Painting

21st Century Panopticism

By Charles Sapp II

With ear to the ground
listening to the footsteps marching towards the future
and swirling winds whispering messages of a prolonged past.
Spacious canvas, painted with opaque pastels, embellishments of vivid nature.
Each color is a period of man’s history,
with overtones of civil curiosity and disobedience;
bleeding a mixture of primal advancements.

Humanity’s lustrous moments dashed with hues of blue
shaded to sea green symbolic of sky and water and the conquering of terrain on seven continents.
The development of cultures that clash with abstract points of view;
we settle this as the art of war
that hangs in life’s museum gallery.
