I’ll write you a picture with my palette of words
I’ll mix and I’ll mingle the nouns and the verbs.
I’ll paint you a story with my writer’s pen
A blank canvas of imagination has no beginning or end.
I’ll show you the world in colorful letters
I’ll write you a picture with commas and feathers.
A dash of whimsy, a touch of black ink,
A stroke of gray graphite mixed up with a wink.
All the colors of dreams painted with verbs
My pen is the paintbrush, my paint is the words.
Of pink paper poppy and flight of black bird
I’ll paint you a story you’ve never quite heard.
Thanks to the ever amazing husband for drawing the picture. He really does put up with a lot around here you know :]
