Blank Canvas

entry picture

It's attitude was neutral

Neither here, nor there

Just a bare canvas

That stands without care

A vast space vibrating

It waits without rush

Filled with anticipation

For the stroke of a brush

Allowing anythingย 

The artist desires

Till the picture appears

For all to admire

Gimme a break
I gotta rhyme
Works real fine.....

So that's just ONE
Of your reading-aloud voices?
I'd now like to hear
A variety of choices

Thanks Don, well you did ask me what my voice was like ๐Ÿ˜ that's just one of my reading aloud voices lol . Good job i dont have your number, you might not be able to wake up or Thalia! Nice to put a voice to a face sometimes though, so there you go.

Ah Thanks for this nice artistically themed poem Nigel, I like the pencil talking to the paint brush!

Thankyou Do.Ro.Thy for your kind words, the music you heard was The kiboe which is a Japanese harplike instrument.

Before long

Ah yes Ruth you were so right
Your voice was all you said
Calming, sorta neutral
Like story just 'fore bed


I listened 'puter-seated
Eyelids semishut
Lulled into oblivion
(And yes I do like nuts)

I can just imagine
Listeners (radio Sunday)
Hanging on your every word
(But no Ruth, don't play croquet)

Wake up Thalia!'ve sent her off to sleep ๐Ÿ˜Ž
