I write what I feel…


The Spirit of Art


Flesh and bone can write the music

And the heart supply the beat,

But for the music to be whole – it needs soul.


Every artist has a soul and his work will not be whole

Unless he leaves a part of it behind.

Painters, sculptors, poets, all,

Often manage to enthral admirers

With the wealth of their emotions.

Joy and sorrow, anguish, pain

Reflected in their work

Can sometimes miss the mark

Being overdone like rumpsteak in the pan.
