On Canvas

a poem by Rita Malhotra Dr

On black canvas
larger and deeper
than its geometric measure
she lights the stars
one by one
paths of light and dark
cross in much more
than time and space

On the lighted canvas
she joins broken pieces
of horizon
to shut the reckless sun
from inflicting more wounds
on earth’s flesh

On canvas
in her journey
of self-discovery
through absent colours of love
she splashes darkness with
multi-dimensional hues
dark now emerges
as a source of light
she embarks upon her journey
towards the absolute
seeking Moksha
seeking redemption.
