'The empty canvas'

THE EMPTY CANVAS

The empty canvas
Here I stand
Ready for the deluded illusion
To be painted, sketched or drawn,
Into the self portrait
I could eventually become

The canvas is empty
Waiting for me to become
A surrealist, because the image
Like the canvas is bereft of substance
Not finished, never to be done
Cos I’m still searching the real me

I will have to start
To begin the search
For the lines and shapes
That portray me
So that people can say
Aye! That was him

He filled the image
Live the life, fulfilled his potential
He was big enough and had importance
Sufficient meaning to his existence
Lived his life to the full
To fill the canvas was his desire

The canvas is still empty
Surrounded by scaffold and a dustsheet
Waiting for the day
Someone will pull the cord
Then paint my outer form
Then I will have to start
The search for the inner me

A Poem in Mime

The poetry is in the mime
It has the perfect metre
Such an immaculate rhyme
There is none greater

All in the movement
Although it’s not on a page
Maybe an improvement
Poetry that doesn’t age

Poetry without a word
What a clever notion
It’s not that absurd
It’s all in the motion

A sign of the times
Not like the old days
Poetry without rhymes
Expressed in different ways

An Original

‘An Original’

Is repetitive a word
That can be used repetitively.
Does a repeating rifle
Ever repeat what they have heard
When you dig up the turf
Why does it re-peat itself
Why does Katie want to re-pete?
Is it to get ‘Ice Cold in Alex’?
I could go on but I’m all petered out
I don’t want to repeat myself
I don’t want to be
Repetitively repetitive repeatedly
By the way
This is not a repeat
It’s an Original

'Imaginary Dinner Guest'

'Imaginary Dinner Guest'

The old man sat deep in thought
I simply asked him why
This is what he had to say

I am Matsuo Basho
I solve the worlds problems
In seventeen syllables
Five-Seven-Five, is my way

He asked if I could be his muse
He would immortalise me in his next Haiku
And so it was written!

I like young Micmac
Always joking, he will learn
Life is serious

But! He was only joking, or was he? ................
