PAD Challenge Day 28

Prompt:  Write a "the world without something" poem.  Early in the challenge, there was a prompt to write a poem that "imagines the world without me".  This one imagines the world without someone or something else.

Colorful World

My two sons paint a picture of quick wit
with vibrant splashes of contagious laughter.
I can't imagine a world without them.

They might be as different as night and
day, these budding artists primed for success,
my two sons paint a picture of quick wit.

I admire our bold gallery, set
carefully with blended brush strokes and mixed
with vibrant splashes of contagious laughter.

This heart of mine would be abstract, no frame
to hold a canvas void of life.
I can't imagine a world without them.
