corner view - white


it's all colors, everything and everywhere. it's the icing on the cake, the salt in the soup, and the stars that shine so bright, when the light is gone. it's the wedding dress i never had, the pearl earrings that took me by surprise, and the moonlight reflecting in the deep, dark water. it's the egg so full of life, the scar on my stomach, the milk i gave my children, and the bones under our flesh. it's the snow that covers the roof, the frost crystals i once had on my window, and the house where i grew up. it's the wild water, the breaking wave, the mountain top, the puffy clouds on a blue, blue summer sky, and the birch trees i miss so much. it's the flag that ends the war and the dove that brings the peace. it's the crisp clean cotton where my head will rest tonight, the fog that floats as the sun sets, the morning dew, and the warm milk in my morning coffee.

it's purity with potential and so much more. it's the surface that has yet to be filled, the piece of paper yet to be written on, and the painting, photography and drawing still to be created.

and then of course it's pretty white things, and natsumi's pick for corner view this week. for the links to more white corner views, visit jane at spain daily.

  19. I like how you represented potential. I have an old frame that I hung on a wall to represent emptiness, and the impossibility to frame something - I never saw it the other way around!

  22. Sometimes I think a painting can never be as wonderful as the white paper it started from. The thrill and awe of that space always intrigues me too.
    Love your post of possibilities.
