Brushes and Dabs of Paint

Sable brushes dipped
in dabs of paint
arranged in a rainbow palette

diluted with water or turpentine
to promote an even flow
across the canvas
juxtaposed in contrasting colors

shapes take form
landscapes appear
abstract dollops purposefully placed
to create flowers, fawna and trees

hours slip by
lost in the zone

of quiet reverie
observing the world
frozen in time
and then setting it free
with the energy
of pigment, stroke
lines and shapes
awash in perfect ecstasy

and so,
day after day
while others toil
at tasks that stifle creativity
I sit at my easel and
happy and free.
