Paint Me In

Here again the day
draws up the colour,
sucks it in deep like
sap, sticky and pungently sweet,
splashing the green
against the blue
with great licks and sweeps,
dotted with pebbles of yellow
bounding birds flashing
their orange song,
little beaks streak between
the rust brown pillars
of shadowed patterns,
where breezes tease the branches
to dance
in their lacy needle skirts
 
Here again the day
dissolves the untruths
of separation,
allows the seep and smear
of tone and hue
to bleed
 
I step into this
collage, offering the
bloodsap of my body
to the frameless creation
 
Here again, with each day,
I am glued to the
vivid presence of the artist
 
capturing light with water,
composing the graceful archs
with soil and stone
and flora,
the endless possibilities of clouds
on horizons
 
paint me in-
infuse me with the palette
of this day
 
                 -Wendi Lopatecki

    I am moved.. Like hearing the secret thoughts of the viewer rather then the artist.. or even the view of the paint itself. 🙂
