An Artist’s Expression of Love, A Poem

gardens-2

 

 

She wanted to give breath

to every beautiful flower

every towering tree

she wanted them

to come alive

the way she felt them

in her heart –

loving each curve

and fragile line

for its beauty spoke to her

much louder than words.

It was here…

that she felt whole

unafraid

and alone, but never lonely.

It was here…

that she found herself

and realized

the symmetry

of her own smile

the beauty

in her own voice.

Whether with pen raised

or paintbrush splatter,

she tried to capture

the nuances

the shades of meaning

in all that she met,

furiously creating

the captured scene

but simultaneously,

tears flowed

across the pages

dampening the canvas

for she knew

she could never

give everything

the loving eye

they truly deserved.
