An Artist's View
by Helena Rainville

A splotch of paint
On canvas, white,
An insignificant form in the world.
A small speck of the brush’s
Independent thought.
Nothing will be done.
For nothing needed to be.
Many looked and wondered.
What could this be?
A boy saw a dragon,
A mother saw a child,
A teacher saw a number,
And then the artist looked,
And smiled.
Imagination was the key.
