The Artist

wildly unrestrained
each brush stroke,
every chisel mark,
pen line–
It is madness
upon canvas or block,
the medium as diverse
as the inspiration of stars.
That muse’s spark–
unbridled insanity, passion,
a furor
of the mind and hand,
finding a synchronous tic
of which beauty
or genius is born.
That moment of creation–
Gods and Goddesses
within the physical plane,
transmutation of energy.
Promethean fire
like a phoenix rising
born repeatedly,
in each new vessel.
