Blank

entry picture

Blankness prevails
So white and so nothing
This canvas becomes
The wall where it hangs
Slumped at its angle
A sorrowful state
Promising nothing
So lifeless and pale
Hints of a thought
Disperse into air
Weightless and empty
And cold to the breath
This blank little canvas
May never be saved
Only waiting for someone
To rescue it’s face

Alison. I think the blank canvas is more exciting - once disturbed the surface becomes a battleground - with the first brushstroke you've already lost -.

Alison,
It`s weird (or amusing?) to think that the `Red Wheelbarrow` school of imagary might consider your piece as an excellent `imagist` piece of work.

(after all,you can`t get more non-committal than a blank canvas).

Seriously, your words say all that needs to be said about it...well.
