amusing tools

art by Beverly Dyer

whatever the craft
we need the right tools
our space to create
and of course our muse!

once these all align
we may sip on a wine
as we sketch or compose
whether art or prose

we use colour and words
to create chirpy birds
or a vase of bright flowers
these are our creative powers

some are truly gifted
others efforts sifted
yet we all do our best
to entertain our quest

dVerse,ย  use Beverly’s art as inspiration, Mish


  1. Beverly’s watercolor is so beautiful!
    Your poem is so inspiring!
    Yes, we do our best! We keep creating art! I will never be a Mary Cassatt or an Emily Dickinson or a Joni Mitchell…but I will keep trying! In the trying is great joy and good “therapy”. ๐Ÿ™‚
    HUGS!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I like this tribute to our commonalities as artists and poets, “whatever the craft”. Space is definitely a key factor….and maybe a little chardonnay.

  3. You reminded me of an argument back in college on our creative writing class: “Are writers born, or made?”
    Your poem just answered it…we can be both or we can be born with it, as you say gifted or we can be made, as you say “others efforts sifted”…but either way is perfect and again as you say “with the right tools”.
    I love this Kate.
