Painted View (Collaboration)

Another collaboration with my ultra-talented friend Kim from the blog Peace, Love and Patchouli

Took us a while to finish this one but it was worth it. I’ve collaborated with her on multiple poems now (this is the third) 

If you are interested in seeing our previous collaborations here they are:

All Together Now.

Higher Love

***********

 

The world, our canvas 

Is as clear as it could ever be

Impromptu strokes, beyond stoked 

For the surprise, I am yet to see.

 

Follow the scene of my soul,

lighter moments of colour

Paint the scene of my mind

Keeping pace with the road ahead

As steps move us forward,

In places where anything goes.

 

Lo and behold

Paintbrush bristles, kiss the poetic palate

Imprinting our souls and what they see;

A persistent light in the unrelenting darkness

Painting pictures with words that appraise 

What the rest of the world 

Would not hesitate taking for granted.

 

I follow my bliss with a like-minded soul

Travelling into the paradise of beauty

And I know you will follow me to the end of days,

In this moment we shall walk together

Basking in the creation we become

Upon this canvas of a place called life

Treading lightly into the miracle of now.

Snare.

How often I read my old poetry,

Would leave you beyond surprised

As each piece plays the part of a snare

Preying on threads of fate

That happen to stray my way

Capturing a moment in Time

Building a statue through Immortalized context

All in the realm of the immaterial

Much to the delight and or melancholy

Of my present self.
