NaPoWriMo – Day…

NaPoWriMo – Day 3

I Painted A Picture
I painted a picture
I painted again
When the canvass
Sagged with grief
And dripped in melancholy
I scrapped away the colors
I found my peace
In the shadow
Of the pigment
Where I began

Author’s Note:
Tonight Leroy and I painted. We played at watercolors and drank some wine.  Mine always end up as a wash. I am never happy and want to see what happens if I just “smooth it out.” Above is the picture I painted and it inspired tonight’s poem. I like it.
I scanned the painting and then used Picnik to add the text.
