A Brighter Day


February 8, 2011 by jrwatson5

An artist is a forest,

coloring the trees,

thinking of the perfect pattern,

painting what he sees to brighten

the dull day,

sketching the sun to beam

on the hidden dullies,

drawing forest animals

over the unwanted,

creating the picture

to enlighten his depressed day,

visualizing the happiness

that brings out his love.
