LOVE OF BEAUTY IS TASTE. THE
CREATION OF BEAUTY IS ART
To channel soul in colours - Love
Stemming tides of
Fanciful exposure, all for the sake of beauty
Can trees twitter? and birds sprout? is
This a mindful state to endure? this taste.
Strongly measured, in strokes and dabs. The
Spell which strangles reality in creation
And in processing, what of
New challenges, new ways in stating beauty
Cognizant of what is,
The 'already there', if only in the mind of Art

  4. Oh i do love the thought of bird twittering... yes I think they can do that. A great use of the line acrostic (it seems like a golden shovel actually)...

  10. Artists are like poets, the brush and the pen can follow the imagination.
    Even so, they can't fool Mother Nature.
    I like Acrostics but like the forward ones better. They are fun to write, I have written a few.
