I, Canvas

Canvas relaxed on easel awaiting the energy of creating
          Six colors chosen, splash on-site
       Shapes emerging, blending, some stands out

Canvas heated poised on easel welcomes the cool touch of paint
 Purple to yellow, Blue to Orange, White to Black all compliment
      Darkness creep upon the kight to swirl its edges

Canvas exhausted cools on easel through the night
 Brushes are washed of color, swirled and straightened
              A work of art has emerged

             Canvas is framed and placed for show
         Proudly being the new center of attention
         The artist agonizes: is this my very best?
