PALE




PALE - I took a little while, and some trial,
to decide on an image, that I could envisage
a picture of pale, my mind stale.
I penciled away, come what may
a pale cup of tea, a pale sea,
what can I draw, some pale straw?
lines and scribble, as I quibble
what shall it be, what do I see.
something white, an idea ignite.
A pale faced clown, with a slight frown,
pales behind a mask, begins his task.
A clown and a story?

you are a poet, i hope you know it! Your clown reminds me of when i was young and loved "The tears of a clown" Red Skelton dressed up as a clown and i love all things clown!!! Great idea btw :)

The subject is more important than the style? This is always the question for all my illustations...but when there are both...
Nice illustration and subject! :)
