Paintings

Within my life, there are many paintings
of different colors, hues, shapes, and sizes.
Each reflection so full of different moods.

Some preceded by a cross in my mind’s eye.
Visions of red and blue and yellow and black,
Each color is part of who I was; who I am.

Others are revealed to me with my brush.
Strokes short and brisk or long and smooth;
each revealed as my vision is expressed.

The vision starts and finishes within me.
My muse revealed only by my inner soul.
The brushstrokes will heal me if I allow.

As I paint by my window to the world and
my inner soul, I heal within a place of quiet.
Serenity overtakes me as I commune with God.

Let’s look at today’s verse and reflection…
