Paint Me a Song

Paint me a floral song
use the wind as your brush
flow harmony’s pastels
rhyming colors so plush

Bend soft magical hues
over canvas pristine
let rise to the heavens
wondrous sound that is seen

Sing me a flower’s soul
use sunlight as your voice
a melody smiling
verses that shine by choice

May notes be as whispers
from each pedal to feel
add texture as rhythm
tickling ears with appeal

Blending of the senses
as sound and sight belong
so I’m humbling asking
paint me a floral song

Just a guy who loves to write; poetry, lyrics, short stories and random thoughts… it is my passion. Photography is my second passion as I love to capture the world around me… to make time stop and to savor a subject forever.

    ROG! I didn’t know you were a painter too! I felt as though you were asking a special someone to do this for you! Wow! I am so impressed by your stunning and beautiful talent! Not to mention your gracious and wonderful personality! You are such an amazing delight! ♥HUGS! XOXOXOXOX

  • Your words are sooo flattering – wow. But got to let ya know… it’s not a painting for real. Just a photo I worked up in photoshop. I am in total awe of those that have the talent to paint and/or draw. Alas… I’m good at stick figures and I almost have “staying-in-the-lines” down in a coloring book!!!!!!!
    Am I still qualified being an uncle?? xoxoxoxoxo
