Artful Life

Caressed by soft winds

Pulling on ancient sails

Wafted on lilting breezes

This love comes to me


Notes on leaves and palm trees

Sounded by rustling firs

Echo through forests eternal

I hear the call within me


Sugar-drenched imagination

Rainbow-coated smiles

Pinwheels and Cartwheels and Handsprings

And laughter all the while


Drenching bright paint on paper

Fresh Ink to pad divine

The scratch, the stroke, the tapestry

Of this artful life of mine
