Painted Words

The words painted a picture
As the girl read the book.

The words painted a picture
Of early dawn skies
Of purple mountains
Of falling rain.

The girl turned the page
And read painted words
Of joy and laughter
Of hopes and fears.

And the words made her see.
And the words made her feel.
And the words made her laugh.
And the words made her cry.

The author chose words
Carefully chosen words
Nouns and adjectives.
Verbs and adverbs
To paint her story
With images strong and bright.

The author’s words painted pictures.
Those pictures created worlds
And feelings
And hopes
And dreams.

The girl turned the next page.
Her heart raced with excitement.
What would happen next?
