If I am a poet,
how can I paint you?
glowing sphere orbs of wonder,
kissing ocean’s cheek
fire erupts in red yellow blush,
before fading to darkness.
the rainbow of colors
playing a captivating hue
couldn’t capture the essence of you.
If I am a poet
I’ll tattoo your body with words
that reflect the significance of
who you truly are.
To capture the brilliance inside you.
An art of beauty
that holds a transparent light
to illuminate the world in chaos.
Rising above turbulent waves of time.
you’re the emblem of hope
emits eternal spark of inspiration
an echo of a life shining throughout
the ages framing their triumphs
tainted with tears and scars
in a canvass called life
in the pages of history
those who touched
lives in myriad ways.
