spot of sun

the spot of sun i'm seeking
came thru the door today
a dance of light and shadow
a luminescent play

kaleidoscope of color
varied in shade and hue
soak up the rays so golden
awake my soul anew

oh what a welcome comfort
the penetrating rays
are to presley's body
on these cold wintry days

the artistry of shadow
the glow of sunny light
fill up this artist's senses
my soul feels such delight

a close-up on my being
would likely soon reveal
it's in the art of creating
that i begin to heal

soak up the spot of sunshine
on this glorious new year's day
hope, peace, love and joy
are winging your way

I'd love to get into pastels but need to take a class or something.

Love this stanza especially:

a close-up on my being
would likely soon reveal
it's in the art of creating
that i begin to heal

I always feel better when I am painting, happy and relaxed.

Great post Julie.
