'Life is beautiful’
The words are centred
bordered by pretty flowers
in the colouring book
The colours I will
choose to fill in
will bring them alive
with the vibrancy they deserve
Yes, life is beautiful
with its hues sinister, bright, pastel,
to be discovered in its richness
each perfectly detailed, yet
blending into the others
a wonderful composition — however
it is not an Allover Painting
There are some blank areas
that only the pigments
of our attitude can fill.
What will you pack those with?
The sharp spikes of an angry heart
and the ugliness of bitter loathing?
With gloomy strokes of inherited pain
or deceptive tinges of morose blue?
Intuitively brush the canvas with love,
peace, forgiveness, joy, compassion...
enhance it with the gold that is the ‘real’ you
Its beauty is not ornamental;
it is in the truth, the significance,
the intensity of your entire being
Treat life gently. Stay purified in its blessedness;
Make it a masterpiece of sacredness.
