Brushes & Strokes


Painting a smile, painting a cry

This life is a painting of us

Painting a pain, painting a pleasure

This us is a painting of life


Every shade means something

Depicting drama, depicting chronicles

We colored our days and nights

Setting us free to brush what are us


There are orbits and drowning cows

Thirty armies of running horses

The rivers and the seas meet

All sceneries captured on our canvass


We trap beautiful mermaids in the ocean

Charming the little seahorses and blue dolphins

They froze as big pictures on our frameworks

Painting this world as it spins round and round

  8. i dig your poetry! i am also a painter so i relate well to this poetry so similar to painting.

  9. the image of spinning, that recalls a fast and whirling motion, and the painting itself where the spninning should be captured is a genius impulse.
    I loved it. all the words you chose, so witty!
