Thought Palette

by Tara Sabet

The mind is a canvas 

a canvas that is constantly changing

with additions to the painting of our thoughts.

Our emotions rest on a palette 

on the easel of our soul. 


There are days where my canvas is filled with blue,

more days than I would like.

I long for the days when yellows and pinks 

would paint a sunset sky. 

I long for flowery meadows 

and serene days at the lake,

but all I paint are dreary storms, 

with blues and blacks and grays.
