One stroke of the brush
In blues and in greens
Can make all the difference
Pull you into the dream.

Swirling and turning
Your hair in the wind
You’ll want to come back
Again and again.

The music is playing
It draws you in
You hope that it lasts
And…. will never end.

The total elation
The look on your face
There’s nowhere like this
In time or in space.

Magical, mystical
A rainbow of colors
They’ll come to you
One… right after the other.

The smell in the air
The feel of your skin
You’ll want to come back
Again and again.

You open your eyes
Could this be real?
You wait for a moment
Stand perfectly still.

Your canvas now filled
With a myriad of colors
Textures and shades
Blended in with each other.

You stare straight ahead
Perplexed, unafraid
Cast your eyes on the canvas
You’re now dazzled, amazed.

Down from the heavens
Sent from above
The angels were with you
You were blessed, you are loved.

    1. Thank you so much!!!!! I was convinced ….my whole life… that I was limited to drawing stick figures only. I am just now learning to draw and use pastels. I have discovered a love for this medium, which inspired this particular poem.
      Thank you for your kind comments! Hope you have a Magical Day! 🏰
