“ The Artist ” ~ would fashion vision ~

From the artist

Comes an impulse,

That gives birth,

To want explore

That which expresses,

A creative singularity…

 

Be block of marble

Carved to find shape

Wouldst release soul…

A stretch of canvas

Begs for colour bold

Hence to explore

Story pleads be told…

Indite to so compose

Words writer means

Create a picture,

Of vibrant telling    

To fashion visions,

Man can so imagine…

 

And when deed be done        

Though then long gone,

They’ve left our world

A culturally better one!

“ The Search ” ~ for who I be ~

 

Need I pursue

This search

For therein who,

Assume I be,

Thus when in fact

Said a reflection

Of what I see…

 

Must I so find

A valid line,

That reaches

Neath the outer

Of my being,

Hence to explain

Be but thin gain…

 

Shall I then fix

To understand

What purpose

So commands,

This searching

For the real me,

Tho assumed be

The whom ye see

Be so of held validity!

 

“ Changing ” ~ to reach beyond ~

 

I’ve ample recall

Changing

To big from small,

Events the details

Of a measure

Notched on the wall,

That tells of progress

Growing bound,

What held be tall

Yet now looks down,

To see a childish goal…

 

Alas best have thought

To give the mind a shot

At growing smartly tall,

And place the measure

Well above the notch

Thus so grow to know,

There be more need

For brain to reach beyond

The marks upon a wall!
