An Artist’s Old Canvas

An artist carried a framed canvas
with its frame facing the street,
the canvas had sat in dust,
and the frame was tad beat,
in disgust, some the artist spurned,
to see the canvas’ face
with desire others burned,
the artist turning it with grace,
displayed a desired collectors masterpiece.

Charlie Bottle's passion is poetry. He has lived on three continents, speaks five languages and loves different cultures, people, music and food. He believes that "Poetry uses the economy of words to express the essence of our humanity." It is this magical use of brevity to express the profound that drew him to poetry. While his professional and personal life has pulled him in different directions, He continues in his discipleship of the craft and writes whenever the muse moves him. While English is his second language it is the language in which he lives, breathes, thinks and writes poetry.
