We are searching for the perfect frame
For a piece of art we haven’t yet painted.

We know the size of the canvas, the blending
Of color and the scale of the brushstrokes,

How many hours it takes to explore
The balance of composition, expression

We’ve stirred a lot of paint, blended
Hues into subtleties never imagined

We both know how unimportant
Framing walls are to the world inside

Still, we begin again, our empty space
Where swirling imagination draws life.
