Writings By Old Women

Life’s Canvas

By Ginger Covert Colla, Published in “A Poet’s Life: Memories, Moods & Reflections 2021

Every day is a blank canvas
on which to paint, to write or contemplate
how life evolves from moment to moment ~
a movement, a contact, or even a nap.
Social media enters the fray
as we spend our time on any one day.
Choose your canvas, size and scope.
Choose your palette of texture and color.
Choose your pen, your brush and vision ~
projects done as workman or scholar.
Paint your images strong and bold
as your life’s portrait now unfolds.
