Only you

If I could paint,

I would wash the background

with all my tears of wasted years,

blend the dark with pastel shades,

the beginning

of new love I had found.

Then with brilliant colors,

foreground with flourish,

flashes and flush,

with dazzling diamonds,

of the golden years

I’m longing to spend

with only you.

      1. Pardon me, I catch people like that all the time:-) I’m also reading at the same time. That’s where I picked up the quote. The image of the wood reaching out to the flames – Somehow I think most of us look at it the other way. What communion he paints of a burning fire!
        Yes please write some more and paint!
