Capture the world in all its beauty,
paint a still life
hang it on the wall.
Splash it with bright colours
make bold your strokes;
show off its beauty with the avidity of your brush
Capture the world in all its fury,
like a raging storm with
flashes of lightning overhead.
Paint the blackness and darkness of the skies
and the helplessness of the man adrift at sea with
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.
