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.
