Art

Plain, white, vacant;
is the canvas…
waiting for the celebration
of color!

One is nothing without the other. 
The boundaries of emptiness, 
the fullness, luster and texture of…
shade, tint or dye.
   
Alone then comforted.
A sinful nature, washed clean. 

Our lives empty, un-purposed, 
that odd hole we have, 
when the lights…
go out.

It is part of us. 
Like someone highlighted only half…
and left pieces unfinished?
The desire then to fill, 
what can not be.

Strike a match and hold it 
close to the wall.
Note…
Light, casts no shadow. 
Darkness fears its touch, 
and shakes at the edges, 
of our senses. 

The waiting blank, the colors in the tray…
Both valueless…
without the Master’s hand.

I loved this Ann. I could see everything as I read this. I am always floored by the talent that I see when strolling through a gallery, amazed would be a better word choice. You poem is art my friend. Worded images that reach out to the reader.

You are so very kind. Hugs. You cheer my heart like a fresh breeze. I was in the mountains the other day. I told my friend, I wished I had brought canning jars. He asked why? I told him to fill them with the smell of sweet pine and bring it back to those that have lost the memory. :) so silly... Have the very nicest day. Ann
