Robert Indiana

Love, by Robert Indiana, photo from: http://www.buncee.com/buncee/9172

Robert Indiana

Words paint
Spread out on canvas like color
Words of hope, words for lover
Painter of words like no other

“God is love.”
Those golden letters inspired
The most recognized image in American art
The letters emerge; “yes!” the word transpires

From young and arrogant
To old and wise
The word still rings true
As immortality is on the rise
