Praise for the Master
You, the Storyteller!
You, the Poet!
Great crafter of beauty and intrigue
and the framing of images
before the mind's eye of the
awake and the alive,
or the awakening and the enlivening
or the asleep and the near dead.
You call us up, out, and through
to images, to the fiery, detailed grandeur
of the story,
the words—jewels of your love.
you are good,
over and through
You, the Creator of Creation!
You, the Creator of Context and Co-Creation,
and of Co-Creators
You, the Envisioner of Imagination:
l'histoire et de poésie--
explicit and tacit
lived and experienced--
we move within the pages of your verse,
rest within the gulleys of your impasto
on the yet-dried canvas in your studio,
dance to the movement of your strings played
by the heavenly spheres,
tread with fear within
your language, yours words, and your language beyond language,
to find we are undone and remade by
the play of it all
the staging and lights
(alongside its frightful reality).
We are living,
awed by your mastery.
