the artist

she paints broad red strokes

slashing across the canvas

expressing lost love

.

endless arabesques

muscles knotted, stretch, plie

painful loveliness

.

clay covered fingers

pressing, building walls higher

beauty from nothing

    Love the imagery. Only critique I will make is that I think the second line should start with “slashing” or “slashed” because “strokes and slashes” conflict with each other (that is are they strokes or slashes … changing the tense however eliminates the confusions, for me anyway). Great write nonetheless. I think painting and poetry suit each other so well. Thanks for the read.
