Painting Life With My Words
~Marge Tindal~ 1999

The day stands like the empty palette,
just waiting for my stroke.
Today I felt so richly blessed,
but for thoughts, I was surely broke.

Not to worry,
for it will pass.
Soon the words I paint
will last.

Each day is started.
Each day is done.
Whether we finish what we start,
or have just begun.

Painting life with my words
is all that I know.
When I'm done,
I trust you'll think so.

Not a Picasso,
not even close.
I wrote what I thought,
that's what matters most.

I create little poems,
and all the while,
I know when I give them
they bring a smile.

I'm not one to blow my own horn,
so I'll close with just this thought.
If I didn't give these poems away,
do you think they would be bought ?

That is the question we all ask:  will it be bought?  I like the imagery you used.

Eloise - Thank you.  Goodness knows I try.

Denise - Awwwww! Are these the words of a friend or what?

Pepper - What a very nice thing to say.

Tara Simms - Glad you liked it. Heck, if it was about money ... I'd have given it up for broke a long time ago.

Severn - Thanks my friend so very much.

Toe, love -
You put an early morning smile on this lady's face.
You underestimate your talents, my friend, Wharhol couldn't hold a Campbell's Soup can to your words.

Gorgeous.
"Painting life with words"-what a delicious way of describing it!
Your readers obviously get a lot out of your poetry, Marge.

Hoot - YOU, my dear friend ...
are a work of art yourself !

PaperGuardian - Thank you so much for the lovely thoughts.  So glad to have you here among friends.

Seymour -
Seymour and a smile ...
what a lovely combination I envision.
Thank you my friend.
I hope it is always thus.

SeaAngel - I'm glad you enjoyed it.
If they get a lot out of it ...
it's because they fill my palette with
the many colors of their friendship

Course they'd be bought and if you're stuck for colour, borrow some from me...I've got plenty to share..
