Painting Peace by Grace Finlay (Highly Commended)

In the silence
The images bloom
Peace is found
Within my room

Worries fly
As bristles spread
Painting flowers
From my head

Flooding the paper
With colour and passion
Everything else is
Just a distraction

Purple for peace
And red for love
Yellow for happiness
And white for a dove

Brushing colours
Warm and cool
Every stroke
Elegant and graceful

You’re in a world
Of your own
Where happiness and peace
Are forever grown
