Empty Stages, Blank Canvases

Performance area at SaGuijo, Makati – 04 February 2015

empty stage

before me;

blank canvas

awaiting

some master’s

touch.

 

i await the

hour

when,

like a

paintbrush

across a

white space,

the notes begin

to flow,

to soar,

winding sinuously

through the

air;

painting pictures

in my head.

 

i close

my eyes:

allowing tune

and tone

and rhythm

and melody

to enfold me,

caress me,

soothe me,

heal me.

 

from this

emptiness,

from this

blank canvas,

masterpieces

are made

and i…

 

i am

restored,

i am

made whole.
