The Artists..... - Poem by RIC BASTASA

the role of a true artist
is to put order to the messy state of things
chopped lines are interconnected again
colors are categorized to a harmonious blending
a room of scattered old and dirty clothes
bedsheets in disarray
pillows on the floor
paper scratches and pens and ink spilled
the artist picks them all up
and puts them properly back to the places
where they must be

for at the beginning there was an order of perfection
but then this universe bangs itself against a black space of a wall
and goes into an accelerated entropy
a scattering, a chaos pursuing upon another chaos
expanding litters of planets and stars

and God the Artist gathers them all into One
Harmony, the Silenced Storm, the Wellness and Wholeness
of These All

We are all these Artists, God's Children looking for Peace.
