It takes a lifetime to create the work of art
for which we were born,
like the union of canvas and pigment;
we are the structure that contains
the color and energy of the art.
We are the interplay of sunlight and shadows,
that reveal a familiar landscape,
stripped of pretense, behind closed doors;
glowing amber fires shed light
upon true beauty within.
