Treasure Island

(1964 and doing pretty good.. / Thiruvalla, Kerala)

Paint your day as you will.....


Each day God gives us a fresh canvass white
On it we have the freedom to paint it right
With either warm colours of compassion true
Or in cold dark shades of grey or of sepia hue

What it looks like at twilight or at eve
Your daily supposed to be “master piece “
Depends entirely on you my dear friend
On how your applied the colours of joy so lent


In parting I leave this as my wish for thee
That all of you every day great painters be
And each days canvass better the one before
And the contentment on your sleeping face do show

Poet's Notes about The Poem

In a year God gifts us 365 canvass boards with a fresh set of colours to paint. And we over a period of time get stuck with a palette of few colours and the journey from joyful child hood on wards becomes more of grey and purple. We must rediscover the poet or painter within and reclaim our happiness.

    I like this poem that everyone should paint white canvass with pleasant colors of happiness and good deeds. Then,
    all of you every day great painters be
    And each days canvass better the one before
    And the contentment on your sleeping face do show
    Nice and well done! (Report) Reply

    The canvas boards are plenty often,
    The painters are many too.
    When the colours go from dim to dimmer
    And when the vision is obstructed with cataract
    Should all of us paint on for ever?

    Your canvas is white and your thoughts are brilliant too.. (Report) Reply

    A great write with a beautiful message! ! We will definitely pay heed to your wish;

    Never leave the canvas of life messy
    Nor allow it to be painted cloudy
    But let it be filled with scenes lovely
    That each day seems heavenly
