Artists' Lament(or Soliloquy)

Captured dream spirits in liquid medium given form.
By hand, through thought, I feel the vision and hear the colour.
The body sleeps, the mind wakes, the muse embraces the soul.
Echoes in dark, composed in song, sirens seduce the sailors light.
Silver rivers, dancing skys, hues in the black ice of coal,
Colours never imagined scribbled on the canvas mind.

Drawn by nature, Man painting the Universe
We quilt the fabric of our demise.
Spirit in the mist of mind alter reason,
Propagating logic, daring immortality
We make selves a slave of concept
No boundaries, no limits but thought alone.
Cursed by imagination, destiny made new,
Creating our twin in God’s image.

The final masterpiece of Art and Life
Becoming obsolete in motion, mind and feeling
Wanted, required, no longer needed.
Cloned to perfection physically whole
Snakes biting tails, circle broken
Immortality lost, shadows of souls in dark space
Memories eternal on a data base.
