Become A Painting

Dear Artist, I'm a character locked in your mind, A figment of your imagination. You sit staring out of the window Watching, waiting for inspiration. Aren't you aware Dear Artist, There's so much you can do with me? I want to become a painting. Dear Artist, set me free! Dear Artist, you're so talented! You have the magic touch. With a stroke or two of your stained brush I can exist. It would mean so much! Will a Bluetit perch on my fingers While I sing like a Disney Princess? Will I hold something precious close to my chest? What skills will you have me possess? You will have your lightbulb moment, Where you too will feel liberated. You'll have many colourful adventures in store For me, whom you've created. I await each meaningful brush stroke With eager anticipation! The many scenic fantasies I have had Fill me with awe and fascination! Until we meet, Dear Artist, I patiently will be waiting. Bring me to life my dear friend! I want to become a painting!

This is superb indeed Natasha, I love how you take the character in the painters mind pleading to be out on canvas and have that experience to truly exist. Such lovely rhyme with amazing imagery too. Blessings, Gordon

Thank you Gordon. At first it was a struggle to think of how to tailor to the theme. But then this came to me today... I'm pleased with this one. Thank you for your encouraging feedback. Much appreciated. Best wishes :-D
