The Arts & Creation

the arts are who we are at our best:

for with the arts
that within us takes a risk
and brings forth something new,
something born out of that which imagines,
which sees what is not yet
and calls it forth into being,

I know the imaginer best in writing
when the story, the poem,
seems to spring full-blown from the head, the heart,

I know next best the visioner in photography,
when the photo reveals itself
within the infinity of possibilities before me,

the creator who draws,
who paints,
who sings,
who makes music,
who dances,
who acts. . .
each releases the imaginer within,
and the world is reborn with each new release of the touch of creation.
