the artist

the artist
gazes with other eyes
inspired by fireflies &
magical dust
places trust
upon the canvas

a prismed palate in hand
in glittering gold


and seemingly uncaring
of what anyone might think
oils blend
into a mélange
yet not confusing
the object in hand
the drawings
a rehearsal
of what was planned


tales unfold
with a genius stroke
finding frivolity
where many view gloom
brightening shadows
that attempt to hide in the dark
revealing pleasures
through art


the underlying drive
to satisfy self
with little embellishment
turns the plain
into fanciful
for an eternal perspective


the style
the charisma
is the magnet
that lures viewers
and the deserving
accolades that ensue


the artist
places trust
