New Canvas (a Lune)

(I’m starting late, but… I wanted to try the Day 1 prompt for NaPoWriMo 2016, which is to write a Lune, a poem with a 5-3-5 syllable count.)

to be graced
with a new canvas.

Clean and white and smooth
smelling of
gesso and creation.

I can’t wait to start
something fresh!
But what should I paint?

So many pigments,
so many
images waiting,

wanting to burst free.
