drawn to sculpture


bronze sculpture of woman

“Cascade,” by Victoria McGeoch

Daily Prompt: Artist’s Eye – Is there a painting or sculpture you’re drawn to? What does it say to you?


She stood there as my searching eye
swept over and around the many
sculpted forms fashioned to flow

like Cascade, each smooth
curve of her speaking a sensuality
not often found in the harsh shine of bronze,

head bowed in genial greeting, hands
behind an arched back artful as
a swan’s dignified nobility

and flair, her rippling gown
a swirling wave before her,
a leap of faith into grace,

a gentle sway of soft surrender
to the force from which she emerged,
artistry finessed by vision forever

merged with form, grounded like myself
newly pegged, old bone to new shaft,
ready to roll upon the rock on which I now stand firm.
