Canvas

A Poem by Neville

Canvas

 

I kiss your eyes

They leave warm oil taste

On my lips

.

I wonder

Will your canvas

Ever dry

?

This is one of the most brilliant things you've ever written that I've read. Usually I do not like short poems becuz I WANT MORE! To me, a short poem is successful when it conjures up a vivid extended series of visions in the reader's mind (in effect, GROWING the little poem into big ideas). That's exactly what this poem does. So many avenues to ponder, after you've set up this brief painting analogy (((NUGS))) Fondly, Margie

When painted with expert care re. light and shade a canvas stays fluid for years - (think of Van Gogh and his sunflowers etc.) and a canvas oiled with love will surely remain fresh despite time's abuse........ a heart-ache hides in these six short lines methinks Nev..............

Nev,
Pondering this poem . . . I see the receiver of the kiss as one who observes life around her, is all the time capturing it in her imagination . . . she sees more than the average person . . . perhaps someone who loves her life, and, yes, wants to share it with others. Someone who can look beyond the darkness and find beauty. Let's hope, in answer to your question, that she never loses that wonder she finds in this world. Hope this is a person who is a big part of your life. Interesting poem my friend.

well that's good enough for me sir.. many thanks indeed... Neville
So much could be said about these beautiful words. There is much imagery and many interpretations. I see this as an oil painting, an old one. I see the author kissing this painting over the years. His lips will ensure the canvas never dries I could also envisage a tear or two here. Superb brevity Neville.

It always starts as a blank canvas; how it ends, dry as dust, or the falling rain of tears, is in the lap of the Gods.

Short, but oh, so very sweet.

how can You do it with just few lines? I really sometimes wish to be able to write like these few effective lines and I always fail unlike You! to me this is hauntingly beautiful, sad, caring, gentle and loving... makes me even want to cry... happy tears or sad tears, makeup or without makeup, please loving Neville just always kiss them away for her...
