My Life

My life, dull
Starts to get
Colorful now
As his hands
Trace curves
Eyes close
In adoration
Of a silence
That fills me
As his colors
Fill my soul
Entering me
He’s happy
As his eyes
Wander, his
Touch soft
Making me
Blush again
Moving out
He looks at
Me, delight
In his eyes
Leans back
And admires
Finally done
He signs off
With a kiss
Final stroke
Of his brush
I’m complete
His exquisite
Masterpiece


Versed for: Theme Thursday – Brush
Image of painting taken from HERE. Original oil painting of this was done by Raja Ravi Varma, one of the world’s most famous Indian painters.

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.

  1. The picture literally comes to life and we can hear her talk. The beautiful words written by you complement the picture very well. Even can picture the artist in these lines…

    “He signs off
    With a kiss
    Final stroke
    Of his brush”

    And the last lines complement the look in her eyes…
    Very good work!!

  2. WHAT A MASTERPIECE!! 😀

    I don’t know whether it is the picture that complements your poem or vice-versa…

    Simply Marvelous!! 😀

    Like Mom say…the picture is alive through your words….

  3. oh most excellent take on the theme…i thought for a minute there the words were going to be in the shape of a brush…there is a sensuality to painting…happy theme thursday!
