Message In Stanza

Poetry and Musings

I need to replace these pencils with paint

Then I need to widen my palette

Eventually, I’ll find inspiration


I would like the mind of C.S. Lewis

I want heart of Mother Teresa

I desire the faith of Christ


As I dabble on the canvas

I reflect on my internal hues

Some smears and light strokes


If I ever want to reflect the nature before me

I have to stop procrastinating

And just start painting


Intellect, love and faith

They will come in due time

Confidence comes in sketches
