Brush Strokes

The cherry hewed sun is barely visible

It represents a fire in the sky

Brilliant, passionate but fading

The wispy clouds in the horizon

Look like they were painted there

Impressionistic work the Master made

In order to amaze us

Such a masterful painter

The works are never similar

Brush strokes by a human hand

May try to imitate the Master's

Yet none can compare to his palate

One can only observe

Responding in reverence

Pleased in ending another chapter

In a day of work well done.
