connecting the dots – dverse

November 13, 2014

That moment
Upon the blank canvas
Picturing each brush stroke
Each twirl
Calling forth the next

That instant
If the canvas might sigh
Declare unspoken affirmation
That ephemeral lines
Eternally connect


From → dverse, poetry

  1. I would say this is a metaphor for the preferred aspect of your life…thankfully very subtle. Enjoyed this one:)

    • yes, once I tried to write a romantic poem and showed it to someone who’s opinion I value very much – she looked at it and said – breasts are already taken – find something else.

      Thus do we learn to be a poet πŸ™‚

      • “breasts are already taken–find something else”—what wise advice….and find something else you did…I love, “If the canvas might sigh”—you have indeed learned to be a poet πŸ™‚

  2. If the canvas might sigh – oh what a lovely line!

  3. The moment of connection – the one when we’re thinking about something new….

  4. I thought of that, one’s mate, well done. Makes my long poem seem a bit wordy πŸ˜‰

  5. Brilliant! Just Brilliant. I love your canvas of words and inspiration.

    You sir are an amazing writer. πŸ™‚

  6. Oh yes, that blank canvas…so inviting, yet also so intimidating. Lovely writing!

  7. The fates connecting forever…………master stroke of great artist that is god.

    • In one manner or another, we are all his canvas – allowed through free will to write ourselves.

  8. It’s like paint flakes kissing my cheeks.

  9. ah what a moment when the dots begin to connect… always amazes me…

  10. I’d have to say that facing a blank canvas, like a blank page, is such a joy and such a burden. And isn’t that just what life is?

  11. love how you capture a moment

  12. Nicely done. The feeling in this metaphor could be transferred to many different aspects of life.

    Yes, the woman you love, the child you whelp & raise, your life, your higher self; nice take on the challenge, good to feel that there is an order midst the chaos.

  14. Wow, I really enjoyed that.
    Though I do have a hard time imagining any canvas to be blank — well, when that canvas is a metaphorical one. πŸ™‚

  15. Ah.. life would be so much easier if i could have said that in 31 words..

    But the image you provide here in words of beauty in tapestry brush..

    is like the thousand words a photo can tell..:)

    But i did limit my comment to 47 words..;)

  16. The thought of a sighing canvas is very intriguing…
