Composer’s Canvas

Poem: Composer’s Canvas

***

 

linen fibers thirst

so white will quench their cry

upon which lines of black will separate the ground from sky

.

down below, a glistening pool

deep ebony will catch

all memories from which beloved melodies will hatch

.

then blackbird notes will find their way

and nestle here and there

taking flight in melodies my heart alone can share

.

and up above lives hopeful sky

limitless and blue

where flights of fancy and delights will carry me

to you

***

This poem was inspired by a writing challenge: You are given a blank canvas and must paint something that represents love. It is a simple poem that makes me smile. I hope it made you smile, too. -Ivy
