every artist will eventually

be recognized with praise

of being genuine

or condemned by the ignorant

the hoi-polloi of a lesser mind.

the artist lives by his/her muse

in whose garden

he or she grows images of

his or her design.

all great art’s fount is thus

thru’ the spirit of a muse:

sacred creation

fusion –

a tremendous earth-shattering

inner-most explosion –

thus the birth of great art.
