ONE BOLD STROKE

With one bold stroke
of brush
or pen,

a world can shift
from fear to hope
and light bright up,
on fire,

as the proper word
or image
sets down in thought
or feel
a pattern that unfolds
as orderly
as the best trained players do
in any scrimmage,

sprung from planted seed
it spreads
into a global scope–

and fulfills
the deepest needs
and the longest held desires.
