an Artist

an artist

Railroad ties offer steps

into the sky where an artist

waits with brush in hand

to smile and create

an unforgettable moment.

Though it may seem complex

an artist has a way of

seeing beyond gloom, gray

paints beauty of a blue jay

seen yesterday in a dying cottonwood.

Imagine colors arranged

to take breaths away

then you’ll see beyond the sky.
