"Spirit in Art" captures an artist's creative experience. It was written for the summer concert of the same name given by tantric pianists Khaleghl Quinn and Camille Escudero. They were joined by dancer Hannah Romanowsky. The program included a piano arrangement of a composition by my partner Cindie called, "Ancient Sacred Memory".

Blank pages – bare canvas - silent keys - empty space.                                                    

Benign matter beckons us to our soul’s declaration.


We muse with urgency or quiet expectation

     for a sweetness that transcends the mundane, 

     for the brine that deepens emotion,

     for the exception that elevates our purpose.


Passion seeking portals of expression:

     we are teased - like meadow grass in a spring breeze;

     blown - like dandelions in a wild fantasy;

     tumbled - like a rockslide down the abyss of thought;

     gathered gently as midnight dew on the edge of oblivion.


We find completion – we are created

     in music and musings,

     tones and tomes,

     motion and momentum,

     kaleidoscopes of color.


Spirit is transmuted into Art:

     liminal prism - porous mirror of Self

     where separation is healed; darkness is illumined;

     sorrow is shared; joy is magnified; Life is deepened.  


Spirit as art.


(c) Vicky M. Semones

Your love of art and artistry as well portrayed in your poem. While I enjoy all forms of artistic endeavor, I tend towards the lower, more natural side, rather than the esoteric, highly literate side of artistry.

I really liked your delving into the Spirit in Art, Vicky. I, for one, became mesmerized by your very descriptive words, which took me inside this, your spirit in art (poetry).
