Zada: The Lucky One

Paul Gauguin, The Meal


Zada: (def.) "The Lucky One"
©2012 Susan Noyes Anderson


Zada was woman, "the lucky one."
She fed them from her rich, round bowl---
the milk of human kindness, poi of pain.


The young men waited---watched her shyly---
ate till she was hungry. Slyly
sliced her sweet fruit---supped again, again.

As a painter, I like Gaugain's style, but I'm suprised by his failing design in this one!
