Magpie 78













"Paint, paint, paint-"
So many tools, in so many
holding places...

The smaller brushes trim out
 mirrors,windows,doors,
The rollers roll on walls 
of many different rooms.

Way up high on scaffolding
they can change a colored sky,
complete with stucco stars
our sanctuary holds
the many dreams of all-

A man who ashes fell
back into earth, yesterday,
He taught me most of all,
to take a brush of any size
and shape those inner shores.
