A black line
In the middle of a white canvas.
Just waiting, for somebody to add more colors
More shapes and brush strokes

A line of black words.
In the middle, of a page
Waiting, for somebody
To read them.
Or somebody to write more

A black cord
Connected to a microphone.
Waiting, to carry the sounds
And hear the sweet music.

A black line of thread
Attached to a needle.
Weaving, in and out of fabric
Hoping to become a ball gown.

A black strip of film
Waiting, to be cut and altered.
Just waiting, to make people laugh
Or to make people cry.

A black piano key.
Laying next to all the white ones
Waiting, to be played and used
To make beautiful music.

A straight black pencil mark
On an otherwise empty piece of paper.
Waiting, to become a building.

A young girl
Staring up at the world.
Just waiting, to become an artist.

I started thinking about art, and all of the different ways of expressing yourself. I also started to wonder about dreams and how they effected the way people create art.
