Like meteors, my thoughts collide,
then fragment into fiery stars.
A whole thought is not often found,
nor is one that does not have scars.

I have tried to corral these stars,
but burned my hands in the process.
Iíve found that after all these years,
the pain grows greater, no, not less.

Perhaps, because the deck is stacked,
an ideal life is hard to find.
Some stumble as the years race by.
I stumble also, but in mind.

Within these stars and scars of thought,
there is much beauty to be seen,
much peace and joy to be found,
from sea oats to a meadow, green.

I am an artist, brush in hand
and paint what my life is to be.
The canvas was supplied by God.
He said the scene was up to me.

Michael, you do paint a beautiful scene, too...with words, as well as in your paintings. You are a very talented artist, friend.....

A heartfelt and touching tribute.  Your technique is sharp, the flow of this put me in an artsy sort of mood.  Oh, and I love the last line... very nice closing.  The chaos of life and mind given the channel of art, because yes indeed, beauty can be found amongst all the inner torment.  It is the artist's job to make that beauty accessible to all.

Lovely work, Auguste.

Michael.......this is exceptional work....
this is perfect.....

I must have had my momma's will
and Gods Amazing Grace...

I'm a survivor....

Yes, Michael, what we do with our life is our gift to God. Though it sure takes awhile to figure it out and paint that picture which will make Him most proud.  

Very good poem. Enjoyed the sentiments. Glad to see you post.


God be with you, Hugs, Pat
