I’ve painted a picture of you
though there are spaces
filled with dark shades of mystery
parts that I cannot clearly see.
Your passion runs deep in red hues
Crimson, scarlet and cherry-red,
sobered by the aquatic look in your eyes,
grounded river banks in verdant lush.
I’ve captured your boundless longing,
your clever wit, as well as your quest
to escape the monotonous pathways of life,
traced in your lithe movements of intrigue.
The yellow glows of your sunshine
state of mind, I smudge and tinge
with magenta and blushes of pink
accentuating your romantic disposition.
I’ve seasoned you in Autumn blends
in celebration of the highlights of Summer
and the shedding of the old for the new.
That is the soulfulness I see in you.
