Fire Rages Hot

Fire rages hot

Only while there is fuel

Once gone it burns out

Ash left as its only clue

Blown away by gusty winds

I can sympathize

Creativity burns hot

When fed by fuel

But once it is expended

There is nothing left but ash

No Art Lies In Pain – A Tanka

No art lies in pain

Pain simply feeds the master

Like bread the hungry

Nourishing body and soul

Statue of David

~

~~ Dominic R. DiFrancesco ~~

 

I Think

I think,

Mind cluttered with words,

Lines,

Life,

Trash,

Looking for an escape,

A blank page,

A song to sing,

Anything,

Something to feel release,

Pressure,

Cooking up inside,

No anger,

Just excitement,

Bursting to create,

Art,

Happiness,

Love,

It matters not,

Pen,

Brush,

Heart,

Soul,

Tools all the same,

On which canvas I will exact a gentle touch,

Is the question which awaits an answer.
