Sounds of Home – Paint

Tuesdays at 2pm
Welcome to the December 8th edition of Sounds of Home!

Colors

I am green today
I chirp with joy like a cricket song.
I am gray today
Gloomy and damp like a morning fog.
I am orange today
Loud and messy like finger paint on the wall.

I am red today
Hopping mad like a playground ball.
I am black today
Strong and tall like a great big bear.
I am purple today
Bright and happy like a butterfly in the air.

I’m a rainbow today
All the colors of the world.
I’m a rainbow today
All the colors of the world.
I’m a rainbow today
All the colors of the world are in me.

I am yellow today
I shine my light out like the sun.
I am white today
Soft and quiet like new snow.
I am blue today
Calm as glass and cool like the sea.

I’m a rainbow today
All the colors of the world.
I’m a rainbow today
All the colors of the world.
I’m a rainbow today
All the colors of the world are in me.
All the colors of the world are in me.

    Thanks to Molly and those who share. I liked what Chris Johansen said about paint covering over old ideas and giving a new start and focus. I did this very thing today with several old paintings that I decided to CHANGE…..I took Gesso and covered sections with white and look forward to trying something different. For my life I could relate to the repent, change direction and start over, not being locked into what WAS. I love the word paint for a whole new reason……Thank you Chris Also, the song COLORS…..is wonderful. I could feel all those parts of me and see them in the brilliance of those colors. Lovely. Thanks Molly
