Pretty as a Picture

by Dawn   Feb 24, 2010

First stroke shows red, later turns to blue.
Second sees yellow shapes kinda like stars.
A few more later and she's a pretty picture of colours.
Give her time & her canvas will be clean again
For you to paint up.
No lasting marks will stay, & only those who've actually
seen the portrait can remember
the effort it took to create it
and the effort it took to clear it.
&& no one can see the cracks that leave it broken.
