Brush Strokes...

where do these strokes take us
handle of life …secure
with bristles fine and straight
feathery soft…
coatings sweet
for all to see

stroke of
up and down
back and forth
leaving a thin film
with each layer

slowly
but with purpose
the layers cover
imperfections
and flaws…

glancing as we do
at the finished work
admiring
surface beauty

not really seeing
what lays beneath
this perfect picture
framed and mounted high

in times of reflection
scratching of surface
of chip away broken
but peering
no deeper

peel back the layers
and look within
for all our flaws
and imperfections
are what make us
the most….
divine painting of all
