Paint your Own Picture

Self Portrait                                                       (1987)


I awoke this morning to a new start

A clean palette

Ready to be swept with all the vibrancy of life


My choice -- 

Bright, bold colors,

muted pastels,


Today is a new beginning and I can paint my own picture


An artist can see the rainbow in a storm

A poet can find peace amid war

A loner can discover romance in his heart


I can paint my own picture
