    I dipped my pen into the
    Coolness of night’s blues
    To paint an atmosphere
    Of quiet serenity’s rest;

    I unraveled today’s canvas
    Freshly made of aspirations
    So that I can begin to design
    A journey into new destiny;

    I stapled the canvas onto the
    Framework of my inhibitions
    To assure that the dampness
    Shall not cause it to rescind;

    I set my untouched art onto
    the stand of principles that
    steadies it from the harsh
    Brush strokes of restoration;

    What shall my painting be?
    Shall it be reminiscent of
    Antiquity or shall it express
    the newness of Neolithic joy;

    will this piece become more
    than a vision in my mental or
    can it be the manifestation of
    a lifetime of spiritual direction;

    I stand before this new canvas
    Untouched by the hands of time
    hoping today this will be the
    masterpiece I’ve so longed for.
