The Portrait

Sitting in front of the lake

while a portrait is being done

a portrayal of innocence

when life is young

Reflections on the water

appearing to be in a dream

a judicious world

the spirit is clean

Time passes

the world is embiggen

cast out of the bubble

no longer any restrictions

Spirit has shades of gray

scars from life’s battles

missing the innocence

taken away like a rattle

The portrait hangs on a wall

on the back is the receipt

the painter captured a moment

a memory to keep

Home in Heaven

time to transcend

a return to innocence

the spirit is cleansed
