He is the Artist

Postby moonflower » Wed May 19, 2010 3:08 pm

Colors fuse to reveal mystic truths
beneath lamplight transcrbed by the brilliant minds
for the brilliant hearts and souls
to fling beauty in the universe
upon a page
upon a canvas
growing through the limbs of the statuette strangely devised
the underlying universe transfused in expression
bent over in work
frustrated beyond the beauty they describe
when no one else sees it
when critics embrace technical skill
quiet dreamers are hurried past
to reach the loudly lavish torrent of the trite
now that is what the masses gravitate towards as art
but where oh where is the mystic man
hovering in the shadows like the beauty he captures
in glass jars
the taste too complex in its simplicity
for you to understand
like the world he holds in his heart

I find it rather poignant personally from an artist's perspective.

quiet dreamers are hurried past
to reach the loudly lavish torrent of the trite


How true, especially in today's world where many coreless, wormy apples are plucked for market and the rich, luscious berries remain trampled under foot. I do not mean to discredit any but sometimes public interests are misguided.

moonstruck,

Ah! I will taste that dew, for me ’tis meet,/And when the moon her pallid face discloses,/I’ll gather some by spells, and incantation.

Poignant is my favorite word.

Very good!
John....you did not live to see-
who we are because of what you left,
what it is we are in what we make of you.

Your poetic imagery in this work is almost jumping off the screen at me as the artist brilliantly flings beauty and fickle social opinion "upon a canvas, upon a page". Very well done!
