Paint my life anew

Thinking of painting the canvas of life anew

The colors rich, vibrant and all divine

Renewing each stroke of the brush with colors

The pink, red, white,  blues and purple


I thought of choosing the shades of the rainbow

They are fine, appealing and mesmerizing

The admiration grows the palate flows

The amazing colors of life gradually pour


I took a walk by the garden to choose a new shade

The greens of blades, the white of lily and the brown

Breathing the colors and sketch each canvas in mind

Which one for work and which one for home


Suddenly the soul knocked at my life’s door

I was amazed to find the soul all dressed

The garment, the jewelry and all it wore

I was amazed at the colors of the soul


The canvas of my life was always painted

In bright, rich colors of a divine soul

The eyes saw the beauty around

Failing to see the soul in colors celestial


Finally the colors of life, painted my canvas

Not a stroke of brush or a palate of colors

The soul transformed into the real life Me

Filled in my life canvas with enchanting colors
