The battle of canvas till tonight

It takes six days, finishing the painting
the painter stares the canvas
there seemed to be a lack of colors
or a deficient in a color?
Blue, green, red, yellows all are there
Even eyes caught brown! 

Oh, there is no color for dawn
The reddish-yellow, a simple eve-color
Artist storks in-between

The war begins on canvas. And the battle is on
from the canvas till tonight, small or large


  • L. B. Mek

    wonderfully intense, in its strategically layered nuance
    what a delight to submerge into those blank poetic spaces of meaning
    within your letters, dear poet
    really well thought-out (in my humble opinion),
    thanks for sharing
