MY BODY IS A PAINTBRUSH

My body is a paintbrush
I could spread all over you.
I may leave you green, or red.
but won't leave you black and blue!

Generous sensuous strokes
upon you I can apply:
could you get such attention
from many another guy?

I may be short and stubby,
or perhaps be long and thin:
either can still offer you
creative love from within.

Meeting in the mirrored room,
skin to skin and heart to heart,
we will see ourselves become
our own living work of art.

From a FB meme:

Your body is not your art, itís your paintbrush. Whether your paintbrush is a tall paintbrush or a thin paintbrush or a stocky paintbrush or a scratched up paintbrush is completely irrelevant.
What is relevant is that YOU HAVE A PAINTBRUSH which can be used to transfer your insides onto the canvas of your life ó where others can see it and be inspired and comforted by it.
Your body is not your offering. Itís just a really amazing instrument which you can use to create your offering each day.

My poem was written reflecting on the theme. Picture by Glennon Doyle, Momastery Art.
