An Echoed Voice


How can I sit at your knee, watching

since I am part of the blank canvas you shaped?


Your hands are birds flying

across this paleness, filling it with scrawny sticks


Twigs that change, grow, multiply

into verdant forests of cerebral thought


On the image remove one tree

to make room for immense multi-hued landscapes


As one field replaces another, they transform from concrete

to timber and the wings of your hands now fly swiftly


New colors flow from your limbs

filtered sun sifts through clouds onto golden fields


More work must be done before your wings can rest

here and there are empty spots where trees or creatures appear


All conception becomes a Word

and in its creation, an overflowing canvas chimes


We, my artist, are your voice and ears

the sound of how you created us from emptiness


It all comes back to you because of giving to us first

we are your word chimes, an echoing of Your voice

About the Poet
Michelle Angelini, aka Chelle, has been writing poetry for over 40 years. She has been published in many Southern California chapbooks and calendars. I am retired and dealing with my health issues. My Saviour, Jesus is always with me. God holds me within His wings. I am working slowly on a second book poetry and possibly my photography. And, I'm over 65 now and still loving it, even though my social life is not what it once was because of the painful fibromyalgia. It's quite frustrating, but I know Jesus still has "work" for me to do to show how much He blesses me.
