If I Could Write

If I could write as easily as I paint: 

I would find the line between

trying and not trying.

Punctuation does apply

within a well-worded painting.

And I would know how to lose time

over brush or pen.

Almost a gift

but for the effort it takes to receive.

Knowing the ropes

is not the same as being.

Do others see inside

another realm apart?

Watching through the lens

of being related.

I’ll circle back to write

on the wind of a destined canvas.
