A Poem


True art does not live in the end product

It resides in the creation

The journey

The path that leads to the product.

Art is a pulsing heartbeat

A flow of energy

A living being

And a way of living.

It is not something to hold

Or to look at

But rather something to

Live inside of

And to study intensely.

It is the choices made

And their consequences

It is the directions followed

And their diverted stems.

It is human nature

Put into new forms and mediums

Art is not a product

Because the end cannot be seen.

How does it work?
