May My Palette Please You

May My Palette Please You

Written by Ken Carman

There are brief moments in life that are golden
Star-like moments that shimmer and shine
Long moments more wonderful for the waiting
Then the dark matter-like days between stars
We would wish on no one
If we could blend them all with a blender
Then use it all to paint the night sky
would we find the vista worth the view?
The totality beauty from our lives
plus the bitter
plus the pain?

May my life
Be van Gogh
Where
when I’m gone
Others find beauty
and meaning
and worth
not just
despite the bitter
despite the pain
but also because of it
