Art, You Are

Art, You Are …



From where you came

beyond sweet, sweet veil

time’s ambivalent presence

caresses you for who you are


Apart from any familiarity

grows indomitable presence

of which you are one and the same

Art, you are for eternity’s sake


Beloved patience oft patterned score

though through beneficence accorded

craving that which comes with want

needs only to be that which is craved


As loving presence believes and wants

apart from that which behooves

altered paths of freedom jaunts

relieve what relief there is to relieve


A rt, you are within deepest sanctity

that which emotive heart befriends

beyond passive passions strut

before those that would be pressed


Without whose form there would be none

without whose presence all would be shunned

art, that wholly disguised interpreter

awaits opening of sure purposed veil

I have been writing since 1967, basically as an emotional release, but in the last few years I have become interested in creation of forms as well as being socially accepted by my peers. So, here I am. Relate to me, please!

    Well penned in a traditional voice, where many of the greats have trodden. I enjoyed it.
