Drawing You

Poem By Dónall Dempsey

First, draw
a smile

then playing with the lines
transform them into laughter

let the laughter escape
the page

& fly around the room

let it alight on
anything it wishes

then delicately

take a pair of
sparkling eyes

until they too
sing with laughter

sketch just
the suggestion of

the passion
that is promised

now put down the pen &
continuing

no further with the drawing

kiss her
for real

...the drawing is complete.

This is now a video by the OVERLOOK ACADEMY and can be view on YouTube. This was a pleasant surprise...I had not been aware it was going to be used but I like what they have done with it. My partner and I had just got together and as she is an artist she was in the process of painting me. I can't draw or paint so I was getting bored just sitting there until I thought I can draw her with words...so here is the encapsulation of that lovely togetherness. It was originally an haiku but then the seed of that grew into this. you paint me in oils I draw you with words Here is the text of the poem DRAWING YOU First, draw a smile then playing with the lines transform them into laughter let the laughter escape the page & fly around the room let it alight on anything it wishes then delicately take a pair of sparkling eyes until they too sing with laughter sketch just the suggestion of the passion that is promised now put down the pen & continuing no further with the drawing kiss her for real ...the drawing is complete.
