Painting Pictures (In The Mind’s Eye)

As many know I’m an artist of various kinds

Art influences so much of my life & my writing

It’s no different, often times, with it,

I simply try to tell stories

that will paint pictures

& leave an impression

on the “canvas”

in the mind’s eye

The Storm

Late one evening in a tiny Georgia town,

lightning was flashing bright & the rain was pouring down

& thunder shook the heavens with an earth shattering sound

Glancing out in the street, there wasn’t a soul there to be found

“Storm of the century” was what the local weather had said

The storm was raging with a fury, that could raise the dead

So everybody hunkered down like frightened children would

If they were hiding from monsters beneath the bed
