art
true expression
pure unadulterated
heart
on the page
on the canvas
does
deserve to see the light of day
does
most assuredly when
it’s good
most assuredly when
it is given
as
a
gift
outside of ego
and depth of character
outside of dreams
illusions of grandeur
art
for arts sake
deserves a spot light
unless of course
there lies in the rubble of man
the
fear
the inability to see
the spirit in the magic of its creation
it
is the fear
the holding back
the shield of the loin cloth
smothering
hiding
veiling
behind the masterpiece
that can then adorn only
your
eyes
the eyes of the seeing
the eyes of the knowing
and
yes
it is sad

Josephine...

Only a true artist can know such mysteries related to the canvas
You lass are both, poetess & artist.
The gallery awaits more.
writers write & painters paint.

Sincerely.

great poem: your views about about art seem to be about subjectivity and perhaps a loss of innocence in the process..Anne pawlak.
