I’ve got five extra minutes to join with Lisa-Jo Baker’s Five Minute Friday today.
Today’s word prompt: Paint.
Watch the color flow
Following it’s water path
A scene unfolds
fireworks of color
explode, ignite, sizzle
White becomes color
Nothing – something
Beauty unfolds before my eyes
The paintbrush guides my hand
Stroke, brush, sweep,
Dab, wet, dip, dab, wet
Dot, dot, dot.
Blend, mix, smooth
Paint transforms, uplifts, inspires
Changes moods, expands the mind, points you to beyond
To where you do not look
The colors form, mix together, creating something new – unlike any other.
A sunset, flower petal, an ocean’s tide
Deep into the souls of eyes,
All part of the big picture, though different,
The picture triumphs
Splatter, drip, dab, mix
Like a dance, the colors intertwine
there it is

Well that’s all I got for today. Now I think I’ll go paint for real!
