Today I'm a painter...

Today I am painting
my thoughts
in this vividly coloured poem
of rich burgundy
glowing orange and
luxurious purple

Here I colour our dreams
in a palette of
warm autumn tones
ochre, chocolate
glimmering gold

Can you see our fantasies
dancing in swift strokes
wallowing in waves of indigo
shimmering silver
and sparkling azure?

The future transforms
into this rare work of art
coming alive on its canvas -
bright scarlet, pure blanc
and royal blue

this painting is my gift to you
a gift of hope
the hope
that my words
will never, ever, leave you
