The Artist

The Artist

A Chapter by Daisie Vergara (Dhaye)
"

For the 10 words I Give Contest

"
My skin is now ready for your eyes 
Not for a stranger in the night 
I know you are waiting for a rhyme 
Like a rainbow that's out of sight 

I painted birds and chickens on canvass 
I know you'll remember this day 
Spend time calculating the hues 
To create a piece all the way 

You may fall short of time and chance 
You may pause and then hurry 
But that's how we create like we explode 
Be obedient if you don't want to feel sorry.



She's an artist. She paints. She write songs, poems and stories. Even a stranger could prove that. Her skin tattoos speak so well. You can see flowers and animals on her arms, neck and shoulder. So funny that even chickens can be seen once you closely look at those marks. As a poet, she mostly observe rhyme and meter. She would always spend time calculating the syllables in a line. She always remember her mentor's teachings even when writing short pieces. There was no moment that she's not obedient of the rules she had learned from him. She won't forget that anything should not be done in a hurry. She is an artist, and her creativity is like an emotion that is going to explode once properly set.

A amazing poem dear friend.
"Not for a stranger in the night
I know you are waiting for a rhyme
Like a rainbow that's out of sight ."
The above lines could stand alone. Thank you Dhaye for sharing your amazing poetry.

Thanks so much for spending your time here.
I gave it a try, Dhaye, and crafted a very odd poem with a really messed up syllable count. I liked your story paragraph using the words too.

Bravo! Creative use of all 10 words. I am thinking of attempting this one myself but haven't done it yet. It is truly challenging and that is why I like making this contest for you folks. Nicely done!
