Let the color speak…..And man they speak volumes

Have you ever worked with chalk pastels?
Held them in hand to feel their texture?
Slid them through your fingers
to let them stain the skin?
Does your patience run low when they slip on paper?
Or when they smudge to their own free will?
Do they seem alive to you?
evolving each day
Have they ever devoured your hours?
mixing shade after shade
To keep pace with the image in mind
but it never seems complete
the colors too dull or bright
until they tell you to quit
or you’ll go insane
Did that ever made you stop?
No one likes a mad man
Still Your eyes pour colour
and smother the lines
every curve holds a fault
And does that rip you every time?
So you finally abandon it to regain the peace of your mind

And yet when you flip through it after a while
this aint my work!
did you ever exclaim?
Well I told you pastels were alive
