Dream in a picture

Putting the brushes into a jar
I view the picture from afar

See how interesting the shapes become,
Trees saying,  hey come,

Come dance with me have some  fun
Hug me, lean back and see the sun

As it rises in the branches it will show
the flowers of the fruit that will grow.

The sun in the blue sky is a hot tool
Just a whisper of a cloud to keep it cool

Look at the stream as it trickles to nought
The minnows and tiddlers ready to be caught

No children in the picture as yet,
Busy getting their jamjars and nets

This dream in a picture is for real
life as it should be not surreal

Life of hope no longer pain
Dreaming of the time when I am me again

I look at my hands covered in colours galore
Paint I can wash away, dreams  I store.

    I love the rhyme and flow of this poem and like the others you nailed it with the last verse. I can only say I wish I had written it. Great job.

    I love the whole poem and like Tim & Becca the way you concluded it was special. Brings to mind an old song--check it out--I will blog about it--part of the words "Put your dreams away for another day and let me take their place in your heart".
