The Canvas

written by: Charlie Bottle



Disciple! Observe the canvas of life,
Where, all the colors exist without strife.
Lacking overtones of avidity,
And, the sly undertones of jealousy.
Oblivious to the breadth of the stroke,
Or, the passion the loaded brush evoked.
Each stroke exists in equanimity,
Its sole purpose is unanimity.
Blind to higher purpose or positions,
Each stroke submits to the artist's mission,
Depicting, Love's perfect burnished beauty,
That ignites every living entity.

Charlie Bottle's passion is poetry. He has lived on three continents, speaks five languages and loves different cultures, people, music and food. He believes that "Poetry uses the economy of words to express the essence of our humanity." It is this magical use of brevity to express the profound that drew him to poetry. While his professional and personal life has pulled him in different directions, He continues in his discipleship of the craft and writes whenever the muse moves him. While English is his second language it is the language in which he lives, breathes, thinks and writes poetry.
