Pictures And Thoughts

Where feathered flame arise the sleepless wind taunt upon the wall, reminiscing the clock sounding tick-tock with a myriad of thoughts waning shadows crawl, but, not lost in one moment of inspiration I give all that I've got ~ With brush in hand and white paper nil I paint mountains high and tumble with the rolling river and smear the rainbow sky in lilting waves of songs profound I pause to regain a dream and carry on through gilded light to greet God's majesty...............

    I was not sure whether to read left to right or top to bottom, so I tried both ways. The left side makes a good poem on its own. The whole in intriguing.
