The Lily Pad Artist

Sunlight shining down from above
Acrylic dots of blue
Shades of violet, blobs of green
Beyond the coral, lives unseen

The painter’s strokes blend the hues
Palette of pigments
Lines of Azul Oceano, spray of Noir de Mars
A symphony of underwater stars

Life within the canvas breathes
Fish glimmer, shells shine
Sunlight drenches their faces
The artist awakens

  1. This is the best poem I’ve read this morning! You have an established voice, you know how to tighten a poem down to its bare bones, and I don’t think I would change a thing. The rhyming is seamless, and doesn’t usurp the momentum and heart of the poem. Great work!
