Image for the poem Droplets


I'll paint a picture for you
with a thin brush on the canvas
Maybe I do not paint well, I'm sorry
But I really want to so badly
I don't know the grace of lines
I can't mix colors in the right tone
What if I paint a picture
from small droplets of different colors?
Yellow droplets of sun glare -
warm specks of happiness and summer
Quiet tenderness will spread
in pink like clouds at dawn
Green drops - they absorbed freshness,
leaves and herbs on wet ground
Transparent drops - drops of sadness
tears of rain on the cold glass
Scarlet droplets, beads of blood
I will gather under a scarred heart
Dairy drops are the ones that will cover
warm lips and provide nourishment
Blue drops - the sea splashes
in memory of seagulls, freedom and wind
Black droplets - splash out grief
drops of fear, drops of death
The only pity is that I cannot complete
this painting, even though I desire to
I miss the DROPS OF LIFE,
They are not among my colors -
Mother of pearl
The incompleteness is so tangible
The idea was not realized, but
I will give you this picture,
maybe YOU can finish it ...
Author's Note
I was just thinking how often I write something but I am never satisfied or do not complete it; always hesitant to post at all. And the more people seem to like, the more anxious I am that my writing will disappoint especially amidst such amazing talent here. So thank you so much for all the support and continuing to make me feel I might add a little value here.
