Love and Art

Love is transcendent 

as beauty is radiant

we only see  

what we want to see

a framework

of essential being

painted legacy 

on a canvas of art

brush strokes

a shape of exquisite nature

on a stage a part

portrayed by an actor

reflected lights

brighten the horizon

and the notion of propriety 

Raised by Wolves

take shelter from the gathering storm

we wait for it to pass

but we know in our hearts

fear prevails

as our surroundings darken

a path is found within

to lead us away to safety

what remains 

cannot be unbroken

like a child

fragile to begin with

then as strength returns

so shall we find in ourselves

the depth of courage

against disparity 

and awaken a truth

a burden of which we carry
