Ode to the Artists

Updated on October 17, 2013

Brushes they rest ... while colors dry
spread with strokes
that make them fly,
paintings... done with hues
all deep,
tired fingers ..
now can sleep

The artists tools .. they are one
for the painter to use...
upon rising sun,
they express their heart
and soul with ease
for the beholders eye
it will please

My love she paints ..
she gives this love
to me ..upon blank canvas
it will be...

Her love is deep, strong
with hues...
all these paints
express this so true,
lines... both black
and dark
with streaks of blue
look at her soul
she shows it...to you

None can match...
this work of art
My love..
we will never part,
For the morning sun
brings tools... from rest
the artist .. again
will give her best

      Real nice poetry. I admire artists for being able to put down on canvas what they see. I can only express it through digital photography.

      Well, I try! We have our exhibition coming up early next month so I'm hoping to sell, but time will tell, things are rather tight at the moment.

      Such a breath of fresh air my friend. Delightful stirrings you create. Thank you for just piling on happy in my life.

      (ps I see some chicanery here -- I think you are the artist with words)
