Conversation with a Canvas

Look at the clouds in the sky.  What do you see? 
(Piles of cotton.)
Keep trying.
(Dragons and ducks.)
Ok, more.
(A waterfall with the mist rising, a fire, someone knitting, laughter, swirls…)
What colors do you see?
(Pink, orange, that creamy peach yogurt I had, blue as a Siamese cat’s eyes.)
What feelings do you feel?
(Calm…silly, pleasant, humble.)
What’s it telling you?
(It’s time to play.)
Listen.  Give it what wants.
