the artist

poetry is simply
a way
of organising
what is 
already here

and music
is only 
giving sound
to
what lies

just below the surface

we think of art
as creating
we congratulate
the artist
but really
their talent
is their 
ability to
decipher
and articulate
some part
of the majestic
and mysterious
universe
that lies 
just below
form.

the real talent
is the
intelligence
that made
everything
possible.

we can congratulate
and applaud
the artist
for their skill
and genius
but
we should never
forget
that which
created
the artist
and the art.
