Paint Me a Picture


A white canvas
a palette of colours
the brush paints
the sun, the moon
the seas, the trees
consistent constants
since the advent
of life
yes, a portrait
once attempted
but never accomplished
for with every stroke
the expressions changed
the face disconnected
with the inner soul
caught in reflections
cast by the outer world
and the one time
it was almost done
the mask came off
only to reveal
another beneath.
