life told in colors


Blank, white canvass inviting
thoughts, feelings, inner- self unfolding
its music, dance, celebration beholding.


Thick and shiny paste
goes round and round on palette
bristles of brush caressing
hidden emotions in every color
sheer joy of union brimming
as colors spread over canvass
telling stories from that beating canvass
the treasure in blood red, many unseen images
strokes and styles blending depth and heights
 you name it different
but like pond, lake, river and ocean
it’s just life and life in color
captured on canvass.


Blank, white canvass inviting
thoughts, feelings, inner-self unfolding
its music, dance, celebration beholding.

  1. Sreeja, I can tell by this poem that you are a painter, as you 'painted' the process of painting so very well with your writing! There is something very inviting about that blank white canvas, isn't there?

    Thick and shiny paste
    goes round and round on palette

  5. Yes! Your poem lovingly, exactly shares the way a painter feels. Your words do both arts justice.

  13. How wonderful that you are both a poet and a painter. I like the metaphor of life being a blank canvas to be filled with all our experiences and feelings. Well done :)

  14. I always see so many similarities between painting and poetry...after all, a blank page is just another kind of canvas waiting to be filled. Beautifully captured!
