Valsa George


Five Liners.no.5. A Slice of Nature


She fixed the canvas on the easel
Her imagination bled into colors deep
Her brush moved along the surface
With a flurry of strokes, images came alive
A slice of Nature animated with man and beasts!

    How beautifully you have goaded our imagination to 'capture a slice of nature' with your five liner, on 'her easel and canvas'! And wow, what a fantastic impression you gave through these words: 'Her imagination bled into colors deep'
    With just five lines, a complete picture came alive, just as you said: 'With a flurry of strokes, images came alive'.
    Marvelous! 10/10. (Report) Reply

    Fixing a perfect moment or embellishing an imperfect one - it would be great to have that skill. (Report) Reply

    beauty in lines
    Her brush moved along the surface

    Wow... beautiful moments captured in canvas. I just wondered if really the images came out alive from canvas....Then I will paint something lovely and inspiring ones only...Loved it... (Report) Reply

    When she gets many such slices readied on that canvas, the bounteous nature will itself be visible to the world. A fine five liner poem from you, Madam Valsa. (Report) Reply
