Abstract Mag TV | Poetry
Abstract seeks fine art in all forms that engages with both the crises and joys of our shared human condition. We seek art that engages the edge of now; we seek to explore a future forward zeitgeist with a respect for the gifts of the past. We are looking for both established and emerging artists across a broad range of genres. Our criterion is quality.

Elephant Seal by Nancy Cherry

04 Dec 2017, Posted by JL Jacobs in Poetry

Art: Astrid Echle ELEPHANT SEAL I’m a barrel in the sea. I roll in joy—tide in, tide out, I land always where I go. I lap and clap my flippers up the day and down to smooth the edges, then slow back into cold, or slip…

Art: Jessie Hall KIAMICHI RIVER DAM What draws us to its roar spewing the push of a hundred-year flood? Rowed plumes spray down to mist splash to eddies and swirls anglers in boats at safer distance casting lines for tailrace stripers swimming fin-to- fin with white…
