Escape the noise,
lock it outside.
Embrace true joy,
creative ride.

Art screams inside,
begs to fly free.
Chooses to stride,
glides with pure glee.

Palette of oils,
brushes at hand.
Release recoil,
floor serves as stand.

A sacred zone,
passionate flow.
Prolific tones,
make visions grow.

Foresee a scene,
hands swiftly paint.
Feed the machine,
without restraint.

Observe the brush,
move with great ease.
Inwardly gush,
fine masterpiece.

A prolific heart must create,
internal flows will then translate.
A sacred zone in a lost state,
astounding forces dominate.

No need to forge what others think,
self valued thoughts form in a blink.
Artistic views building great links,
a masterpiece can never sink.

Original, one of a kind,
entrancing hands quickly design.
A second glance to redefine,
image composed within the mind.

Distinct intentions swim with ease,
ideas encaged can now fly free.
Imagination crafts the key,
exposing views for all to see.

Ballerina take your stance
let them know what you demand.
Gain control within your dance
tiptoeing to the commands.

Ballerina show your strength,
graceful beauty perfect pace.
Stretch your leg to a full length,
hide the pain traced on your face.

Ballerina hold your pose,
looking like a single rose.
All your weight lands on your toes,
putting on a perfect show.

Ballerina win the crowd,
leaping high to spin around.
Final move leads to a bow,
posing gently on the ground.

Ballerina go to sleep,
music box full of stories,
my gems are all yours to keep,
in exchange for your glories
