The day begins a jumbled mess
on the canvas of my mind –
the replay of a past faux pas
a snippet of a movie watched
a mental list of chores
So I concentrate on clearing the canvas
or better yet, not concentrating at all
I inhale potential wonders
and exhale past angst
purging graffiti with each breath
Then as an artist with a blank canvas
I can paint the lifescape of my day.
