“The appearances of things change according to the emotions, and thus we see magic and beauty in them, while the magic and beauty are really in ourselves.” Kahlil Gibran
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.
