Scapes of the heart

New horizon, John Lyons (40 x 40 cm, oil on canvas)

Scapes of the heart

I apply paint to canvas
           with brush or palette knife
I wipe with a rag
           I move colours around
until I have created
           something original
something simple and fresh
           in this case
a new horizon
           buoyant and full of light
and dare I say
           unlimited promise

a scene in which
           nothing has foundered
a scene that boasts
           of years to come
of wide waters that will
           bear me up
when I find love again
           or love finds me

John Lyons
