Write in Color

Etch out your idea
with a stencil and
begin with soft stroke of blue,
just inside the lines.
Then maybe a metaphor
and a simile,
make it a satire
only you could understand
keep them guessing,
wanting more.
Do it in first-person
write what you see
make it abstract,
but true to you
blend, create and
bring it to life.
Perhaps some personification,
create fingers, hands
a beating heart.
Add a coat on top,
a semi-gloss finish
dip back into water,

repeat

and do it again
