ILLEGAL LINIMENT

ILLEGAL LINIMENT

Potential words or legitimate…

As yet unused in-intimate…

Refused, unused and somewhat confused…

As the poet who shared this sentiment.

Art Is All There Is and Love Is How It Came To Be

lee_broom

Everything in the Universe is made from the crumbs of something else.

Surely, this is the first rule of Creativity and Creativity must certainly be the first consideration in defining art.

And for those of us who have lived this Creative Experience, whether it be to suddenly hear the first words in a poem on its way into our reality or becoming aware of a business idea rising to the surface or perhaps caressing a piece of unfettered marble and feeling the sculpture hidden among its veins or Miracle of Miracles, helping to form a new person, whether by fertilizing an egg or stumbling through the agonizing pile of paperwork and interviews to adopt a child, the feeling that accompanies such Creative Endeavors is called Love.

 

To Camouflage…..

CAMOUFLAGE

To Camouflage…..

 

We want to be different;

to be noticed

but not too different.

We also want to be loved

but also respected.

One of the gang

but also special.

Leopards and Zebras and Holsteins when bunched together

appear to be one

’til one steps away.

The spindly legged Zebra colt moves toward the patch of black and yellow flowers

and becomes lunch.

Fred loosens his tie and others notice

but not so much.

Delilah wags her tail and grins her doggie grin;

we miss her still.

 

Art creates art.

and becomes popular and

then not.

And Art’s art is forgotten

as is Art.

To Camouflage.

or not to camouflage;

is that the question?

To Camouflage…..?

Art Is All There Is and Love Is How It Came To Be.

Knowing these things helps me when I feel Broken for in recalling this Truth I look forward to becoming a better Lee.
