Artist’s Dilemma

《They》say
Just a dab’l do ya
Or will it do ya in
A spot of paint can spread awry
Destroy the image in one’s eye
Every drop of perspiration
Dampened by a single stroke
Do I start anew
It’s only paint and paper

dversepoets.com Quadrill Monday, late. The word is “dab”

About Mary (tqhousecat)

I am a wife and a mother of two grown children. I love Jesus and sharing my faith through written words. I currently have a poetry blog and also write on medium.com. My main focus is hope in Christ. I only wish that whoever reads this will be blessed, inspired and occasionally amused.

    Maybe you take the spread paint … create something unique, brand new. A lovely poem.

    ‘Just a dab’l do ya”….i had forgotten about that catchy phrase!
    i think this may have been meant for De’s quadrille prompt, but no worries.

    That’s the beauty of art – you can always start again! Love this, Mary.
