on an empty canvas
what could it be
in words so few?
ah! a splash
from a paintbrush
dipped, in the shades of you

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! 🙂
Your name always puts a huge smile on my face Line :)) thank you so much for your kind words! I totally agree, in fact that thought came to my mind too after. We indeed are impressions of the Beloved, born out of love 🙂 appreciate you stopping by..stay blessed and amazing!
This is really beautiful. I wish I had thought of it.
