Rock, Paper, Scissors
(Inspired by my painting, ROCK, PAPER, SCISSORS)
They challenged us.
Rock, Paper, Scissors, a game of competition,
create a painting with this theme.
Being one who dislikes competition
and the oft arising conflict,
I determined a way
to unify these disparate parts.
Scissors formed trees.
Stones became rocks.
Paper created ground texture
and paint detailed and unified the whole
Are we capable of re-writing our conflicts in this way?
Can love and acceptance provide the paint
and our actions be the brushes
to unify us,
to bring all people together?
