Passion Vitalizes Art: A Poem

The Universe inspires ardent flames of passion

Artists must shape life with the abandon of a hungry lover

Insights are formed upon

The fiery golden forge of eternity

Spark the soul’s hearth with courageous fervor

The glory of glories does not respond to gentle entreaties

The wellspring of creation is unreachable to sober pleas

Awakened imagination generates ecstatic abandonment

Through art we re-unite with Creation

Initiation slithers from fingertips
Glowing vitality
Sparkling originality
From blankness comes the reflection

Transforming the emptiness

Through sincere devotion

Unquestioned desire
Unquenchable thirst

Are slaked by artful conception

Channel the flow

Across raw flesh and bone

Until a portion of your essence

Lies captured within the medium

Of its creation
