Painting This Moment

Painting This Moment
By Pauline Harris

Varied are the colours
Mixture of elements
Try this technique
Stroke the brush that way
Gather details with this
Mixture, not too heavy
Lighten that area
Shadows add depth
Make this part abstract
While making that part realistic
Impressions are collected
Viewpoints distinguished
Completed product needed
To flow together as one
Tormented with indecision
Postpone unveiling
Resting and gaining strength
Moonglow ignites
Newfound inspiration
Goal met, complete
And whole painting done
Unveiled to world
Mixed emotions
As criticism and
Adornments come

Lone Orchid

Lone Orchid
by Pauline Harris

A sea of poppies
In all directions
Set in this field
Off of an old base
Long since gone
Were the echoes
Of those who served
Leaving peace
But what was ours
Here to make
For we fight still
Over viewpoints
And don’t listen
To the wisdom
In the wind
Or of those who know
Written words
Or oral memories
Of how peace can be
Some choose to break
Clinging to fears
However there is
But one love
Paving the way
If only our hearts
Can open up
With healing
A common start
Shared joys
Beginnings to have
Willingly to live
Together, side by side
With one lone orchid
In a sea of poppies
Helping to guide
To Love Forward

Gold/yellow, green, and purple with some white were the colours used here…the green didn’t like the purple as when they were close to one another they changed to a tan brown.
