Mindful Painting

Mindful Painting

I have  painted

A rainbow in my mind,

Stealing the colours

From the butterfly.

Joy in my heart,

Stealing the blue

Stealing the smile

From the Buddha’s face.

I have painted peace

In my soul,

Stealing a child’s innocence.

But find him within,

And you’ll find

Nirvana effortless.
