Blank Canvas

The canvas was stark white
No marks of life yet added
Possibilities
Innocence
Purity

Through loving strokes came color
Blue streaks of light
Happiness
Serenity
Joy

Next came contrasts of hue
Adding variety for all to see
Imagination
Knowledge
Growth

But the artists hand was interrupted
Sticky red jagged lines
Betrayal
Pain
Death

CloudySky, Most artists paint pictures using brushes, but you,
yes you, paint a magnificent picture with words. Van Gough could
never have equaled your picture. On a personal note, to clutch someone and experience life leaving the body, brings deeper appreciation of your write. Thank you. studecarcrying teddybear
