Paper and Canvas(A poem by Phanuel Ayelum)

It’s all blank;

Clear, clean and unclouded-

Pure, pelucide and explicit-



It is this moment of empty perfection,

That provides the room-

For artistic creation.

It’s a plain plane with room to stain,

It’s all just-

Paper and canvas.


are the writer with enough right;

To lay your ink,

Trace your graphite,

Onto the paper and canvas,

Of life.


are the author,

Authorized with just about enough authority,

To decide and determine-

The flow of this story

This is your

Paper and canvas

And you-

Are the paint artist,


To brush your paint brush-

Across this un-brushed

Surface of perfection.

It’s all blank and meaningless,

Void and vacuous;

Until you dare temper-

With your paper and canvas!

By: Phanuel Ayelum.
