an artists hands

a page full of lines,
just that,
endless ink, or paint,
just signs without a place,
without a place to go.

and such lines,
who linger alone,
who in untrained hands
can find no home,

are ripe with joy,
and yearn to grow,
to be tended well,
when love is shown.

those lines go on
for miles,
go round and round
awhile.

yet, in an artists hands
those lines become
dolphins, sand or butterflies,
mermaids, stars, and meteorites,
in an artists hands
lines learn to smile,
to give us love, to make us cry,

in artists hands they are brought to life,
the seasons swell from side to side
the oceans rise, and the sadness subsides,

an artist makes this world alive.
