Painting the world

Painting the world

Capture the world in all its beauty,

paint a still life

frame it

hang it on the wall.

Splash it with bright colours

make bold your strokes;

show off its beauty with the avidity of your brush

strokes.

 

 

Capture the world in all its fury,

like a raging storm with

flashes of lightning overhead.

Paint the blackness and darkness of the skies

overhead;

and the helplessness of the man adrift at sea with

the shore

so near but yet so far.

 

 

Capture the world in all its promise;

the grass springing up after the rain is past,

the sun breaking through the layers of cloud,

itching to lend its rays on the earth;

cheering up the birds and setting them to sing;

coaxing the fluttering of the wings of the butterflies.

 

 

Capture the world with colours

tell a tale of its many sides:

set it up- a painting on a wall

drawing to it by its realness

men from all walks of life.
