The Painter


Under the mirrored hall

Champagne sparkles like rain

Wolves eyes entice

Melting the sheep’s hearts like ice


Staring out to the city

Smoke escapes the painter’s mouth

Snow falls like confetti

From the skyscrapers above


Colourful darts explode onto his canvas

Slashing away memories

With the knife of his paint brush


Tearing out of his painting

The bird breaks away

Flying above monochrome skies and icy lakes

To shine in it’s truth

For the rest of it’s days.



Painting by Robert Ioan. Poem by Jeremy Warder 2019.
