Painting: Poem

colours.jpg

An art brush drips inside of me

Throbbing, kicking wildly

Lettering a tragicomedy-

Brazen strokes vibrant of

ecstasy, sorrow and madness

bleeding in –

Red Green Blue

throw themselves

against the receptive canvas

I live loudly

My single redeeming attribute

I hold nothing back-

When you ask to witness

the spells of a fiery sketch

Don’t be bewildered

if I confess –

All my paintings

breathe

inside of me

  1. Oh, my word. This is wonderful – both the artwork and the telling of it!

    ‘My single redeeming attribute / I hold nothing back.’ May that ever be so (though your readers will be certain that you’re possessed of many more redeeming attributes!)

    Your writing is a joy. Thank you for sharing …
