Empty palette

Empty canvas

 

Not devoid

 

Fresh like sunbaked whitewash

 

Startling

 

Intimidating

 

Room for so much colour

 

Will one wrong colour stain this canvas?

 

Will the colours mix?

 

To plunge ahead with broad strikes,

Or delicate pencil sketching?

 

To find safety in geometrical construct

Or lose myself in abstract beauty?

 

Hit

 

Miss

 

Gamble

 

It all lies ahead

 

Now.
