I don't favorite a ton, so if your work is here then I really really love it! :tighthug:




The making of art does not require much
And yet it requires

A hand to hold onto, wrinkled, pudgy or lithe
A whisper to capture like a firefly and stow away in yesterday’s pants pocket
Two tubes of pigment and a bottle
Ink for the blackest of blacks
Against the drips of mascara tumbling down the bags of my eyes
Three pencils to grasp onto,
One: to teach patience
Two: to teach concentration
Three: to teach courage
And the grays in between to teach compromise
Two chipped coffee mugs,
Weathered and beaten with brushstrokes and lipstick stains from the nights
I remember eating alone; you loved the sea
“Happy Birthday. I’m sorry this is all I could get for you.”
“You drew this?”


Two toned- paper and  I spiral through a tunnel, one stroke up, down, left, right,
A rustle under the blankets and I see your eyes
Waking up to the moonlight
“Tell me a story, mommy”
Jade swirls into lavender, the princess breaks free
Her crystal gymnasium lay in pieces before me.
The woods breathe life into her again and the night unravels in her head
“What if I show you a picture instead?”
Two toned and one stroke to the left, up, down, breathing against the moonlight.

Fast forward, rewind,
Those tears you left behind
When green seeps into red and my lines grow muddy,
Teach me how to struggle, to fall into the depths
to show me, on my knees in agony
The labor that touches my paper hearts,
The IV sewn into my skin that taps into its veins,
bleeding the spectrum:
crimson, cardinal, aubergine, emerald green. No Vicodin or aspirin,
No cheap highs, ashy truths, or bells ringing promises that leave me without food.
I give to you a gift, enveloped in the tea stains and beats that rupture and soothe my eardrums,
A gift to see into color, to believe in bayous and basins
On gumdrop planets
And candy floss continents,
to touch feathers and fur fallen from the beasts soaring above you.
Two tubes of pigment and a bottle to retrieve

Take my hand and believe.
The prompt was "how will my art change the world"I kinda went really loose with it but whateva :la:
