COLORED CANVAS


Examination of introspection
I realize I am nothing.
I'm not a detail
just part of the background.

Brushed lightly on the canvas
to fill up space.
Never a bright color
always a fading blue.

The page turns in the book
the painting is incomplete.
The book is unfinished
am I just not reading outside the lines?

Is this to signify
something I don't want to believe?
I flip to the last page
the afterword reads....

"In the vastness of the universe
one must not focus on the bigger picture"
