artistry effect

The weaver


with skill and care to intertwine

a fine cloak

of  communities

- of life.

The artist

carving a tree

follows the grain

in harmony

with its natural character.

These significant spells

of kinship with all creatures

seen as living

in the carving or cloak.


            We cannot simply

            govern the process

            of the artist -

            what criterion we might use for ‘worthiness’.

            We cannot choose

            what is going to reflect

            someone’s essence.

            Look once more

            uses we might make

of enhancing value.

What is of importance

            is the idea

            in the abstract -

            in the impossible.
