White canvas

I welcome the white canvas. 

May the reason why 
we paint on it 
be our humble wisdom, 
our loving inner light. 

May the colours 
that we choose 
be the landscape 
of your truth and mine. 

The future is empty, 
the past is gone. 

But we are still here, 
holding our hearts, imagining 
the many shapes of hope, 
as the first brushstrokes unfold. 

I welcome our blank canvas. 

What its vastness becomes, 
is yet 
to be
