Portraits Poetry Series #8: The Little Artist

Portraits Series

She captured the clouds
in her painting
huge streaks of white
danced upon the canvas
a mix of blue and purple
played beneath the clouds
and she captured them
held them in her hands
imagined them in her mind
and let them soak deep
into the canvas
the grassy field –
found its way there
along with the leaning tree
gray and stark
against the white sky
again – held in her hands
caressed and loved
then captured in her scene
her eyes saw beauty everywhere
and nothing –
nothing escaped her notice
they seeped into her soul
and took hold
these images held in her mind
forever,
a part of her and yet –
apart from her
she stands back
the artist at the easel
she was just a child,
but she could see . . .
despite her youth
despite her smaller frame
she saw more than many
and though her art may
some day be celebrated,
the true masterpiece
was her beautiful heart.
