my existence
on an empty canvas
what could it be
in words so few?

ah! a splash
from a paintbrush
dipped, in the shades of you

    Dear Himani,

    Thank you for this post. How very, very beautiful! I think it is indeed just a few words that constitute our essence. All the rest may fall away.

    Oh, I became so happy when I saw another poem by you in my inbox! Two in one day! Yaaay! 🙂 Your imagery here is just extraordinary! I love that “dipped in the shades of you”. Oh, so gorgeous! I got associations to: “God has created us in His image”, to me that means that God is Love and we are reflections of Love 🙂 So we are “dipped in the shade of” Love! 🙂
