Paint and Sip

Purple echoes, whisper truths,
calmness cascade, stress reduce.
Lilac covered silhouettes,
peaceable hues chase regrets.

Lavender skies on display,
puffy clouds create bouquets.
Iris enhances full moon,
sweet floral scents make hearts swoon.

Amethyst thoughts shine so high,
breaths escape within a sigh.
Thirsty lips savor grape wine,
last brush stroke completes design.

Magenta acrylic paint,
masterpiece flawlessly quaint.
One last look and quick goodbye,
pull away so art could dry.

  2. If everyone hosting a paint and sip event used this poem to market it, they would have waiting lists a mile long. Beautifully done, Grace! πŸ’žπŸ’žπŸ’ž
