Hour 11: painting

I painted a picture for you,

to help you on your journey

and remind you of the happy times we’ve had.

Periwinkle(1) softening up the sky,

with the clouds(2) enveloping, inviting you in for a hug.

A splash of yellow beaming down like a spread(3) of

happiness across the canvas.

A figure stands in the center,

dressed all in black, save for the

bright red gumboots(4) and

arms wide to receive the warmth.

Can you see yourself in this painting?

I tried to capture your soul in the lines and colors

but after a beat (5), decided that only a true artist

can capture your essence.

Instead, I painted what you’d need:

warm memories on those cold and dark days.
