If I - Poem by Gert Strydom

If I could grab
the heavenly blue
from the sky
and could place it
in a picture,
could capture the black
of the night on it
and stars hanging above
I would almost be
like the Creator,
or maybe it would have made
Vincent proud,
but it’s only
a few blunt words
that I leave here.

    Blunt words that have been read by me, and what I see is a sharp expressive imagination.
    Will be looking for more of your prose. ;)
