Global Language Village Art

by Oonah V. Joslin

male and female
created Chagall
scapegoat and cross
upside down, right side up

we sip on the prick of milk
offered by an ancient tree
humanity and loss
together like breasts

beauty resides
with the beholder
colours balance
perception so
there’s always sky above and grass below
red earth and nature eye to eye
no why of it
no age

old continuities
in love

we are both the apple
and the seed

Chagall painting
I and the Village
Marc Chagall, 1911
