If I Could Paint…
I wish I could paint…
pictures of fanciful pansies with white
petals splashed in the middle with purple
hues and bright, yellow dots to create small,
paintings of playful kittens, which attack
each other as their weary grey and black
striped mother teaches them how to pursue
and capture their prey.
an image etched in my mind of my dad
in heaven with his arms outstretched to draw
diverse animals around him, hugging
our departed pets.
Instead, I engage
words and colorful phrases to describe
life as I see it, seeking to convey
hope while I do my best to illustrate
my dreams and visions.
