By Brush and Paint

threads of time present and past
seasons of change and memories cast
many a word to reveal
what is imagined what is real
many a page to unfold
a story a drama be told
labors and blessed fruit to bear
loving gifts of the Creator's care
a vision, a journey, with word kept known
by brush and paint, such knowing shown.

  1. I would have enjoyed being able to watch an artist paint a painting such as this! "loving gifts of the Creator's care"...what a blessing!

  2. Your words go perfectly with the painting.
    Thank you for sharing, Rose Marie ...
