Ekphrasis

Some put their art to canvas,
still others upon a stage.
Sculptors with caring hands,
writers on printed page.

Some work with sight and color,
others create art in rage.
Actors act in character,
authors with words of a sage.

Some use light and perception,
others work with shape and form.
Life begins at conception,
art lives as a child is born.

We search for art in life,
life, in the art of another.
One drawn in an artist’s sketch,
and one in the arms of a lover.
