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.

Prompt – Peaceable

Impressionable Art

Underneath the painted tree,
time stands still, as birds fly free,
past steep hills, aqua blue streams,
art instills, magical dreams.

Amused by the painted tree,
watch the winds sail happily,
details transcend, sense the scene,
form a tale, of what will be.

Relax with the painted tree,
hear sound advice, resolve needs,
precise words will plant the seeds,
so warm and nice, hearts will feed.

Absorb the fine painted tree,
it provides wise energy,
enjoy the ride, synergy,
feel it guide, serenity.

Moonwashed Weekly Challenge #148 – June 20, 2023
Prompt – Amuse


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.
