Another poem from Leah, as I continue to work on my paintings for the upcoming show.
I hope to have # 1 entitled "Dance With Death" done by the 15th...I even penned a poem to accompany this piece. Then I will start painting # 2 and I must have it done by the 1st week in September...I hope to be back writing full time then...all yall poets in the Den...take care.
Allen


 

 

Today was a red day

So when I picked up

My beautiful ultramarine blue

My fingers squeezed

Much too hard on the tube.

The paint hit the palette

With such violent force

Then mixed with other colors

Making mud. Vivid hues lost.

Picture of love unpainted.

Tears streamed down my face

Oh God, forgive me!

How can I undo

That which is done?

Gently I touched

My colors of love

Hoping they would reappear.

Oh wretch that I am!

Words all seem so inadequate

As I stare at the empty tube.

I am sorry.

 

(c) Leah Cecile Wilson 2004

" Sorry seems to be the hardest word " Leah
It takes inner strength and honesty , to admit one's own mistakes in life .
