The Artist - Poem by David Taylor

All this rests
in His mind.

Senses operate
bringing names and forms
as willed.

The canvas shines
displays immutability.

Brush strokes and colours
calling out
only to reflect His light.

Vital force
radiating from a hub
of pure creativity.

All changing
merely to indicate
that which does not change.

Love is manifest
for all.

    Each stanza? is a poetic brushstroke... Love the directions this Artist made me look me..
    'All changing merely to indicate that which does not change.' IMO this alone is charged as an awesome picture painted for prosperity.
