An Artistic Spirit
Staring at the vibrant colors of the vagrant clouds
that dazzle in the glory of the evening sun
renders a serene spectacle that a painter contemplates
to convey a realistic landscape that remains undone.
His brush is more generous than the view,
he must accomplish something rare but also precious...
that panoramic illusion below a sky ever blue
by showing the boldness of an artistic spirit that he only declares.
Will he be able to finish his masterpiece
and rest a brief moment to realize it's magnificence
with its melancholy seen in a field of sunflower
and on that thoughtful face of lonely rider?
He'll be pondering his peaceful death in fading twilight
and without pretense he'll be tasting the true essence
of what lies ahead remembering how warm was sunlight:
that illuminated a universe so gradiose and immense.
