Poem: The Secret of Masterpieces

The Secret of Masterpieces

And so you paint.
A few lines. A few more.
Then you wait.
Let them settle in.
Let the paint dry.

Decide.
Whether or not it is worth the work
to finish.
Often, it is not.

It is OK
to toss a few
on your way to your masterpiece.

About this poem.

True in painting. True in life. A lesson learned the hard way.
