Empty Space; a Poem about waiting

dark photo of me

I wait in an empty space

The dark doesn’t scare me

I am waiting, waiting for life to start

I will stay here, barely moving

Ready for when the lights turn on

Ready for the right time to take part

Then the space will be filled

Excitement barely controlled

As life begins with art

The under-appreciated art

The under-appreciated art

Scatterings look like clumps of feathers

Discarded pieces left upon the floor


They see the hidden beauty

Unlocking the full potential with precision

Working till the transformation is complete


Is it really to be less valued

Than sculptures or paintings?

The under-appreciated art of hairdressing.
