Went Painting Today

Went painting today,
Revisiting childhood:
The nervous, guided strokes
Of the brush, held by nimble hands,
Following the lead,
Of the loving mentor.

Went painting today,
Revisiting childhood:
Recalling the wise words–
Never let the colors play with you,
Learn to play with the colors:
And such is life.

Went painting today,
Revisiting childhood:
The child who slept for a long time,
Finally woken up from her deep slumber–
Ready to create brushstrokes of her own,
Independent from her departed mentor.
