Endeavors - Poem by Marcia Schwartz

The joy and passions of life burn messages
of traditional passions of arduous images,
As the Artist explores the mechanics of internal life
the precision of strength forms into conception;
Endless reflections reveal profound meaning
such as no ordinary eye could communicate,
Insightful mastery seeks the last rose on rebound
trapped in the enchantment of reformation. Gestures rooted in solitude leap into the sunshine
as poetic motion creates the almost forgotten question,
Is the moment of esthetic reality finally here
or is more effort still on for the chase?
The emotional intensity to find a way out
succumbs to both night and morning,
For the endurance of grace fills fond memory
as a secret place in the heart finds youth.
