Haunted Mind (NaPoMo 23)

Haunted Mind
Form: Raven’s Rovi Sonnet 23 – aba cdcd aedbc ee
Theme: Love Subject: Pencil

On canvas, her pleasure my brush can flaunt
From pencil sketches and photos I took
And that smile, her smile, feeling my want
With brushstrokes and knives, watercolours and oil
She’s always smiling within my mind’s eye
My heart isn’t racing from artist’s toil
Ye painting captures the unbidden sigh
Yet don’t stop that smile on its gentle haunt
Through the wandering thoughts inside my mind
I love the feelings of her floating by
And sensing her wherever I dare look
When lines of a pencil begin to coil
Like hair in my fingers in art defined
As I close my eyes into the rewind
