Plastic tray, full of paint. Green and blue and yellow and red.
Feet and hands and do your best.
And you loved this - heart and star potato prints.
Trail a blaze on paper sheet, rainbow hands and rainbow feet.
It was lovely to see.
A glimpse of a boy growing more like me.
Colour and shape and bright ideas. Creative - I believe.
So a picture for our wall (still intact and standing tall),
Crumbled not from paint specs on the floor.
Mess, it seems, hurts not at all.
But rather shines a light - days still cold to play outside,
Starry skies and colours of the rainbow brought inside.
And you asked not for DVD, TV or computer screen.
Tore off trousers, socks and tee,
Stood in paint and laughed with me... x
