The Celestial Phoenix greets me again. The geese, his messenger's of the new day, wake the morning's dew from the grasses with their adolescent sqwuaks.

And this is why I stopped painting. For such improbably perfect beauty is surely the work of a mind lost.
And lest I be named as such I replaced the brush
and pursued lesser godliness.

For an admirer of art .. I feel this misses the gist of where painters go when they're in the groove or their work grabs me. It's holy to me.
