Still Paintings

Still paintings are portraits of you
Pristine pictures once, twice, shining anew
With various colors some bold others cool
Drawing a stark contrast of your many hues
Which color describes you best?
Never knowing what to expect
Paintings like you are never dull
Exciting, tantalizing portraits hanging on walls
Admiring them from afar
Each revealing pattern disecting every part
Drawing me in with every look
Absorbing every inch like words of a book
Wondering what picture to draw next
Like skipping chapters in a text
Going to the very end for the ever after
That final painting of you and I in laughter

    What more could I ask for today? It is a beautiful day the sun shining and birds singing. I am reading your poetry in which you share a little of yourself maybe without even realizing it you have written from your soul. Thank you for sharing your wonderful poetry with us Taina. Love, Carol
