CONJURE THE GLOW
My paint brush is wielded as so a wand.
Stirring stagnation to movement, we bond.
She knew all along that she was the seed:
The alchemy of staleness to the fullness of deed.
I summon the colors, they succumb to my will.
So happy are they for the chance to fulfill!
By forging my craft, we conjure the glow.
We paint on the paper and watch the love grow.
The bustle of chroma brightens our sphere,
Expands our cosmos and abates my fear.
You see, my brush is a tool of bewitchment.
She casts her spells with nothing but pigment!
Asleep or awake, it just matters not.
Each state is as real as the seer sees ought.
I knew I was focused outward with healing to do…
But outward is backwards when healing’s concerned!
Time is so patient, no reason to fret.
As I finally came back to the place where we met.
And there I remembered all I once knew,
As my brush electrified my hand with hue!
The breeze of betterment polished my soul,
My visage now boasts fresh joy with no toll.
Here we will stay ‘til this dream comes to end.
My art is my love, my brush is my friend.
