The Stroke of a Brush

Stroke of a Brush


By: Debra Sue Higginbotham
a.k.a. Healthy Habit Lady

The stroke of a brush,

upon an unpainted scene,

escapes within a place

SO silent and serene.

A wide stripe of amber

in no particular direction,

mixes within a mauve

not far from perfection.

A bold blend of brown

aimlessly finds a spot.

hugging a humble hue

which often fades a lot.

A dashing dab of olive,

randomly paints the page,

encouraging creativity

in this introductory stage.

The stroke of a brush,

turns color into art …

an unpainted scene,

is the perfect place to start.


November 2009

As always, make champion choices,
The Healthy Habit Lady
