For the past 5 weeks, I’ve been on an amazing journey. I have been taking part in Flora Bowley’s intuitive painting e-course Bloom True. I have never considered myself an artist in the traditional sense. Painting was something that other people did. You know, people with talent, with a GIFT for painting. But the first time I watched a video of Flora in action, I thought that maybe, just maybe there was an artist in me, too. I can’t say that I’ve found my painter’s voice in just 5 weeks, but I am on my way. Today, on the final painting day of the class, I return to my “art” with words. This poem is called For Flora.
Use the rainbow
To express your truth.
Allow the paintbrush to
Dance wildly over the blank
Nothingness that was there before.
Surrender to the voice from within,
For it knows more than you could imagine.
