Inspired by Emily Dickinson.

Painted by a tortured soul
canvas covered empty hole.
Facing down another day
out of focus faded gray.

Darkness slowly filled the space 
Sunlight banished from her face. 
Comfort longed for never sought
solitude and drifting thought.

Once so close eluded clutch
never came along as much.
Sealed inside an amber jewel  
safe and unemotional.

Woken by a thunderstorm
frozen watercolors warm.
Capturing the beauty there
inspiration from despair.
