Painting the world

Capture the world in all its beauty,
paint a still life,
frame it,
hang it on the wall.
Splash it with bright colours,
make bold your strokes;
show off its beauty with the avidity of your brushstrokes.  

Capture the world in all its fury,
like a raging storm with flashes of lightning overhead.
Paint the blackness and darkness of the skies overhead;
and the helplessness of the man adrift at sea with the shore
so near but yet so far.  

Capture the world in all its promise;
the grass springing up after the rain is past,the sun breaking through the layers of cloud,itching to lend its rays on the earth;
cheering up the birds and setting them to sing;
coaxing the fluttering of the wings of the butterflies. 

Capture the world with colours
tell a tale of its many sides:
set it up- a painting on a wall
drawing to it by its realness
men from all walks of life.
