13. Life the artist

There is a simple art
To being alive
With life itself
The artist

Painting lives
upon the face
Of an open
empty canvas

These lives appear
here or there
Even though
That’s not so

All there is
To life the artist
Is this conscious
Loving home.

Bridge the gap
Between oneself
And the life
of which Is seen

And this simple art
Of being alive
Will surely
be revealed.
