Street Art




splashing colors,
wall comes alive with stories,
haunting stormy sky

~0~0~

in the fading light,
he paints his soul on the wall,
flaming dragon

~0~0~

red and blue oils
mingle with sweat and dust:
art for everyday man

Update:   I am pleased to announce that this poem has been included in the Second Issue of Nain Rouge.
