Paint the World

Brush in hand,I lay my plan, Start from the sea,then paint the land, From the sea I take the blue, Paint it crystal,you can see right through, Take the blue and paint the breeze, Rain-bow for flowers,orange for trees, Erase the brown from the earth, Wave my brush,clean cloths,white dirt, Painted all disasters, brightest red, Better satellite imagery trying to minimize the dead, Tone down Mr Sun,a lighter shade of yellow, Soothing his anger,now he's a jolly fellow, Pink glows,north,east,south or west, Lovers staring at the moon,feel the gentleness, My paint,my brush,my colours sway, Painting this world,each and every day...

Truly, one of the best colour poems I have read. I wonder, do you paint? apart from doing so in words, I mean. Archontoula
