Author’s Note: The film American Beauty (1999) is one of the inspirations in this writing. The picture showing the plastic bag was a scene from that film.

A blank canvas hung in the wall
It stares at me
A broken record in repetition
It tells a story
A plastic bag floating in mid-air
It shouts “I’m free!”
It makes me wonder…

Like a piece of paper
Like a melody
Waiting for the words to fill them
Like a bed of roses
Emanating scent –
Provoking, seducing
Stimulating the mind

But it’s beyond –
What the eyes can see
What the ears can hear
What the heart can feel
It’s not always the way it seems
It’s emptying the mind and soul
Then submit to nothingness…
