A Lesson In Painting I & II

paint

Paint from within.

Use beauty and wisdom

to design your work.

Close your mind

to interruptions.

Paint from within.

See beyond your eyes

to reality and imagination.

Push the cold away.

Paint from within.

Bring lovers together.

Let them share

a stolen kiss.

Push away

the one who has been scorned.

Paint from within.

Bring the world to you,

so close

you can reach out and touch it.

Now, paint from within.

 

II

 

Colors are life,

paint not only pictures

but true life.

Paint with your heart

not your hands.

Colors are life.

Paint budding green trees,

not splashes of mixed oils

to give only allusion.

Smell the new growth

on a spring breeze.

Colors are life.

Paint secret meetings,

not stick figures

holding hands.

Paint love from within.

Colors are life.

Paint babies so real

you can hear them cry,

touch their velvet skin.

See beyond your eyes

to reality and imagination.

Colors are life, now paint!
