Hobo Artist

I got to be part of a really fun project recently called 'Chocolate Chips and Rocket Ships, 99 1/2 poems in 100 days' by John O'Marra. Each poem is illustrated by a different artist. (Check it out, some of the art is pretty phenomenal!) The offbeat poems are definitely up my alley - so much so, it was hard to choose just one, but this is the one I decided on, entitled 'Art.'

A polar bear in a snowstorm.
A massive razor-sharp fang.
Flying through a fluffy cloud.
Five minutes before the Big Bang.

Four different paintings,
Four different visions,
Four studies in shadow and light-
Not half bad when you realize
The only color paint I have is
