Ode to a Painter!

With an extra visual sense you are moulded

 Installed with a third eye to capture and convey

If not how you portray things so magically

Cannot wink my eyes as I am spellbound


Wonder you do with your sketches and scribbles

With the softest and simplest tool called brush

Encompassing the word’s beauty in your canvas

Competing even with God the master creator


A wholesome treat you give with varied hues

An awesome feast for our frozen eyes and souls

With winged imagination you soar in heights

 Into a realm of your own which have no bounds.


Dazzling damsels and dashing menfolk

Flying birds and smiling blossoms

Flowing waters and swinging trees

Nothing is spared everything enlivened


Thou art a creator with a magical wand

Breathing life into motionless caricatures

Thou art a magnifier with matchless skill

Glorifying even a frivolous insect with details


Though a mortal you eternalize everything perennial

Making lifelike portraits with those crafty fingers

Beautifying anything that taunts and trickles you

Offering artistic treasures to be preserved forever!

Sk has a distinctive style of weaving a subject in full form and metre and that has manifested here in a full blossom.Each time you write you improve by leaps and bounds from the previous which is what perseverance bringsforth. Be cheerful and vibrant to keep on writing.
