Blank Canvas

A free verse poem

This young man

is a giant blank canvas

that's been stuck

on the artist's easel

for weeks on end.

I have zero clue

which colours to use,

shapes and lines to draw,

and paint brushes to utilize.

This young man

is an unused,

large blank canvas

I purchased for

an affordable price.

I'm unsure

of how to begin

this complex painting,

because there are

so many elements

to make use of

to complete this complex project.

I'll get right into it,

grab my art supplies,

and transform this

huge, white blank canvas

into a magnificent,

painted portrait.


he'll be

a work of art

for the entire planet

to view and discover.
