The best canvas

The best canvas

By May Kwek

I have never seen a canvas
As beautiful as the sky
With colours like a song
Among the clouds so high

At dawn and dusk it’s a rainbow
A mix of red, gold and green
With a special glow which makes it
Far too grand for a queen

At other times it’s blue
Like the ocean so deep
Sometimes it’s covered with clouds
Who are gathering to weep

At such times the skies are filled
With a powerful stormy grey
Blocking out the sun
And the blue ever so gay

I have never known a canvas
Which could elicit such emotions
Of happiness, content and fear
While changing its colourations

So don’t you think
That the sky is a marvellous thing?
Changing from red to blue to grey
In the time it takes to wink?
