Accommodation

The engineer built the tools he drew,

the doctor treated the pain, the actor was able to explain,

She modelled it on me and I was inspired by you,

you can deny it,

but isolation may not be for you,

mutual accommodation,

how we get along,

tolerance does not mean silence,

silence does not mean ignorance,

I mix my oil paints and pour them upon the canvas,

warm Spring mornings,

I texture the paint so you may feel the story with your hands,

Summer afternoons,

the shapes are driven by my imagination and mood,

the dashing colours of Autumn,

the image appears like unsuspecting rhymes in a new poem,

the bleak tranquillity of Winter, 

a mixture of virtues,

 

 

 

 

 

 

Patterns and paint

Draw and paint,

express yourself with art,

don’t put it off,

make a start,

mix some colour,

draw a shape,

put down on paper,

let your mind escape,

write a song,

it may help you carry on,

blank paper a bless,

in context that can feel a mess,

let your tears mix with colour,

what have you to say,

that is in your DNA,

 

 

 

 

Soviet

Love lost or broken heart,
stop to mourn and be reborn,
beginning here and ending there,
cut down and nailed in place,
the saviour of the Russian race,
a fresh view of modern art,
don’t be lonely make a start,
