She Paints ~ Her Life's Canvas

She Paints ~ Her Life's Canvas

A Chapter by Dr. YumnaKay
"

Experimental. Just a touch dreamy. ..

"

She paints, in ecstasy ~ her life's canvas.

A beautiful image flooded her mind,
brought alive by the tip of her fingers,
as a gibbous moon above her lingers.

As enthralled she was in the nightly glow;
smoke-stained clouds, to oblivion, drifted,
and the shadowy doubts, at last, lifted.

In ecstasy, she paints ~ her life's canvas.

Wow Yumna,

Seems like you know this person! And the person seems like quite a dreamer, finally waking up and seeing the light of the day. Hopefully, this time the dreamer would paint brighter colors on her canvas of life.

Very surreal. Yet so real.

Kudos,
M.

Thank you so much for appreciating, angel. Glad you enjoyed reading :-)
Absolutely superb poem and image Yumna! Ethereal, astral, evocative imagery. Wonderful title and theme. We paint our our “life’s canvas” in everything we do. “Brought alive by the tips of her fingers”- great line. Graceful language and verses. Uplifting last verse and line. A lovely dreamscape.

Thank you so much for your beautiful review of this piece, Annette! I'm humbled :)
To me it's describing someone who perhaps has insomnia and has nothing but their thoughts to think about and wishing to go back to that blank canvas new start.... great write.

Thank you so much for liking this one, Sarah. Appreciate your words here 💜
This is a beautifully crafted poem, Dr. The repeating 'f' letters help the lines drift into each other effortlessly. The images and the ability to bring out the superlative characteristics of the poems actor is flawless also.

A great read.

I like the way you begin and end with (almost) the same line yet you change the meaning ever so slightly. a very beautiful and dreamy piece :)
