The Painter - Poem by Je'Kiya Hill

His words were like the paint brushing on a blank canvas. Fulfilling.
Creating something that wasn't there before.
And in this work: Love.
His words flowed and once started unable to stop until fully satisfied like an estranged artist who's attic suddenly clicked and brightened.
Once his brush touched that canvas he was unable to stop.

He cherished and loved art.
It was his everything.
It brightened the rainy gloomy days in which he spent countless hours, and sleepless dreary nights staring at that void, deserted, desolate canvas.
Until he saw that spark that lit up that cob filled attic.
He began to paint again.

That spark, that love.
He said was me! me?
I was his work of art?
Yes..... I, me, I was his inspiration, his love, the spark.
His work of art.


Poet's Notes about The Poem

Well actually i wrote this poem in spanish class. We were on a new chapter vocabulary and the chapter was about not particularly just art but the vocabulary in spanish and as we were going through the lessons i saw some very beautiful art work (which were included in the book: class book.) and it was one in particular that just made me at loss for words it was called 'Madre Y Nino' By Oswaldo Guayasamín. it just got me feeling really good its a really beautiful mesmerizing work of art. well in my eyes. i really love art. when i saw that painting my mind just started overflowing with a nerver ending waterfall of words which made up for the loss. and im a romantic freak so i just created a poem of art and love.
