Personal Poetry

Your Life Paints a Canvas


If you think of your life as a poem
what will your verse be?

Some cry melancholic
while others sing joyous.

Some are short but
beautiful in haiku,
others tell a story
long and majestic
or withering evenings
and challenging mornings.

What ever your journey
you are weaving threads
of colour through
each other’s lives.

Don’t be still,
a knot on the canvas,
flow like cotton,
dance like silk
and have your verse
be a note on life’s canvas.

  – Andrew Pitchford   (August 2014)
