A Quick Sketch Fetch (A Poetry Stretch)

A Quick Stretch Memory

A quick flight energy

simply now to see

All that’s new to me


A quick moment to despair

‘What will I ‘er put there’


A quick time just to see

the rudimentary,

an elementary force

to sketch without source

of reason and then

stretch to a brand new



Time to learn anew

all the things that can come through


Release the critic in you

‘Adieu, adieu, adieu’

(that’s probably enough of you…

you weren’t helping much, were you?)


That regimented pew

of disdain accrue

only when you’re too

ordered to let go,

but it’s time to show

you are now in open flow


A quick stretch

A final fetch

of pure sunshine

when the world is mine,


I openly incline

to full-on harvest time

to reap so many thoughts

and have juggled all the thwarts

of imagination – welcome

to a soul creation

an open force and

live sensation

just to push on through

by sketching live

is what I do


and in a single sitting,

oh how hard you’re pitting

to give it one good go

and push once more to open



delicacy, a winged play of ecstasy

when the sun captures me

open to reality that can hum

anew with a simple sketch I do


so play your colours true,

release the inner artist in you


and play your colours bold

go beyond what you were told


and play your colours bright

all now to new sense alight


and in a flight of fantasy

a simple sketch I see

means to so much to me


and all the other stuff

hardly means so much

a simple touch on paper

a simple hold of hand

and you start to sketch

what your heart command:


a simple sense of going

a simple sense of flowing

in a moment true

that’s now alive in you


and when you start accrue

the odd sketch or two

you’ll simply start to laugh

at the delightful things you craft


so just give it a go

the artist always show

what leads to greater flow

and helps you then to know

a grander, greater show

(than all those “I told you so”)



Purple Eyes Publishing

Inner critic

now just pit it hard

release into a shard

life’s final card

a joyful little bard.




A Quick Sketch Fetch (A Poetry Stretch)

When the cat sat on the mat - it never thought of that - it just took a look - the simple message that it took (just to get unstuck): 'just give it all a go - if you want to experience flow' - what else is there to know: just one-two-three, now show what it's like to be: back in open flow, enjoying the moment as it show better ways to.
