Sere


 

Empty canvas longing for
smooth caress of brush,
as dusty film gathers on
surface.
Vacant images secluded
in time, as the thirst for
expression grows with each
perpetual day.

I once dreamed of vibrant
skies, books flapping their
pages over subtle seas,
playfully looping one another,
as they race along surface.
Guided to perfection with
still hand, and gentle bristles.
I was a magician, maker of
miracles, bristled wand in
hand, creating life and love
in vivid tones of violets and hues.

Am I nothing more than a sponge,
panting and thirsting along
desert sands, sere air withering
my skin, almost like time dried
inspiration.
Ah yes, a sponge, dry and empty,
exceeding the boundaries that didn�t
exist, to frizzle beneath peering sun,
withering to subtle tones of yesterday.
