Canvas and frame

scorching heat
head to toe sweat
hands getting tired
nails are wet
Hard work,
heart’s work
Created art work
priceless,
sold for pennies
true artists few
fakes so many

Hardship

Sun rises, day warms
warmth turns to scorching heat
Shades, cooler climes, for lucky few
Rest toil, digging soil, human stew
Body melts, soul shivers
Sweat flows like a river
fixing rust buckets at noon
Why the day doesn’t end soon
Unforgiving Helios prolongs stay
Some of us will die today
