Painted Lies

Updated: Jul 9

Artists of our lives

Colorings in our chosen frames

Painting realities of passing days

Seeing and sharing

Taking blues out of greens

Powdered yellows sing

The sweetness of friendship

Adding red into blues

Creating periwinkle hues

Reflecting on purple for purpose

Flaring glare, bright intentions

Sinking into the shades of truth

Drowning realities in liquid gold

And gray smoke hazes

The ocean’s mass

Inky blue mazes

Time drying

As we wade our way through

Shadows of mourning monsters

Walking on the walls

Down drowning in the caves

Markings of old ways

We search for courage to step out

Finally seeing the burning light of the fire

Co-curating the framing colors of our lives

Available to the walk

Masterpiece of the talk

Truthful shapes

Blurry backgrounds

Pointed perspectives

Evergoing compositions

Open exhibit or exclusive premières

Holding truths

Releasing fears

Ephemeral flashes

Leaving us


Walking our rounds
