Razors Edge: a #haiku

Normally I don’t do this but this week I’m taking a little “artistic license” with Ronovan’s weekly challenge; not only am I stretching the use of one of the challenge words I’m also breaking the syllable rule for haiku, which I never do! I hope with all that this still fits the proverbial-bill.

Painting: a tanka 

I’m a fairly creative person – at least I think I am. I love to make things and to restore them. I so enjoy doing art – even forms that I know I’m not that good at: painting is one of those things. But there are so many ways to paint and bring life and color to the world how can I resist the urge? I don’t.

with various mediums
beauty can be found

but words paint most vividly
