My Canvas Speaks


So soft are shadows cast by moon
as I stroll through the grass this night
and freckled stars adorn the sky.
For eons they have shared their light.

I am a man that paints the sea,
an artist that paints woman’s blush,
as she is nude and sits for me,
while I touch canvas with my brush.

I am a poet, it would seem,
a man of words, of scribbled ink,
but words fall short, conveying thought.
At least, that’s how I’ve come to think.

A brush to canvas is my world.
It cannot lie, will not deceive.
I paint the word of flesh and blood,
in times of joy, times we grieve.    

A canvas lasts, as paper rots,
the thoughts passed on to still be read.
What he creates still brings a smile,
though artist now, long since is dead.

I paint the world, do so in truth.
It is a record of my stay.
When I am swept from off this earth
my canvas will have words to say.

Michael

Many a poets words and artists brush strokes are remembered and cherished long after the artist's last breath.  To have the gift to share in both ways is wonderful.  Glad to see you posting again, my friend!

and in the canvas of all white
you paint away on through the night
to cast a gleam into an eye
while I find the words to sigh

(smiles) Oh Michael, this is wonderful, sweet friend, I am so happy you are writing again, I was thinking about you a lot lately and hope everything went alright! (big hugggssssss) It is a wonderful thing to paint the world as you honestly see it, for not only do we find satisfaction and inspire others but then even after our last breath the children of tomorrow will always see what we see and the canvas only expands in beauty! (sigh) This is excellent, sweet firend, I love it, we all love you so much! You have such a beautiful heart, sweet Michael, thank you for sharing!



May love and light always shine upon you!

Love,
Noah Eaton

This is a gorgeous poem, Michael.  You truly are an artist in every sense of the word...
You paint lovely pictures on canvas but also with your words.
~ so glad you are feeling better hugs


up to the top this one goes again....
