Painting Snowdrops

Drawing the brush

Smooth

Through the page

Green

Forming

Snowdrop stems

.

Clear green

Sweet life

Lifts from the page

Moving up

White of the paper

Becoming

Gentle heads

Of the flowers

.

Opening

Wings like

A palm

A hand

Opening

Towards the ground

.

Underneath

Grasses rise

As water falls

Hitting

The snowdrop

Dropping

Unfrozen

From the palms

Onto the rising grass

.

Paint thick

Scorches the flower

Green tips

Falling

Watercolor brown

To the edges

Of the paper

Where the brush swirls

Waiting to start

Anew
