Art Room B24

The canvas lies cracked in the corner
Dust on the brush
time
A still life painted in blue

The dirty light bulb flickers
The match stick men are sleeping
Colour
Fading like a memory in the sun

Portraits in slow motion
Rose tinted glass and egg shell frames
Gone
I am leaving

This is wonderful Rosa! I love art classes and your description is great. There's a sadness here..........even though it still makes me want to paint something. Sincerely, Mary
This is a beautiful poem, sparse and understated.
