A Painting of Modern Art

I saw it hanging in the 'Modern Art Section',
intriguing, inviting my close inspection:
Star-like dots occupied the middle,
comet-like tails trailed behind.
It struck me as some kind of a riddle,
a puzzle to solve and to understand.

I remained immersed in deep thought.
Someone asked, 'what do you make of it? ’

[Hata Bildir]
