My Mistress Art

 

“Art never seems to make me peaceful or pure.”
— Willem de Kooning

 

Art drives my dreams in colour and shape. My hands express visions that my mind can’t contain. I surrender to line and I kneel to the curve with symbols and memories of events I have never seen. Once known, my mistress cannot be forsaken tho my talent may never reach to encompass her. I will forsake all before I give her up and in her absence I am forlorn. I soil myself to feel her caress and each stain on my soul becomes yet another utterance given by her.
Blessings, G

Dancing Star Paradoxes

 

“The attitude that nature is chaotic and that the artist puts order into it is a very absurd point of view, I think. All that we can hope for is to put some order into ourselves.”
Willem de Kooning

 

“One must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing star.”
Friedrich Nietzsche

 

“How wonderful that we have met with a paradox. Now we have some hope of making progress.”
Niels Bohr

 

Create from chaos a new order
like sand castles doomed when the tide comes in
A fun game that symbolizes our lives
we create temporary structures of thought and deed
one day the tide comes in and those structures vanish
while we build another
never realizing the friendship of entropy
for without it we could not create
Eternity would pass and we would stagnate
in castles that have become prisons
yearning for destruction’s kiss
so we could create anew.

 

Blessings, G
