you are art

you are art
all your life you’ll be
1zr3wnstnvy-aaron-burdenremember that for me
you can’t help
but be that way
it’s in your dna
so go ahead and
live life loud
the ups & downs
the ins & outs
but take your camera,
pencils, paints,
you got something
others ain’t
let it take you
to new places
let it help you
get through stasis
someday when they’re so inclined
your stars may align
and even if they never do
there will remain a piece of you
take heart
you
yourselves
are art

magnified magnificence

you picture takers
photo kings
who share with us
who give us wings
who brave the world
to play with light
i’ve become
your acolyte
i follow you
around outdoors
to black and whitebreathtaking
or tinted shores
to painted skies,
personified
raw innocence,
to mountain peaks
or to uniquely
magnified
magnificence
from the safety
of my nest
i’m inspired
i’m impressed
you take away
my very breath
youse is
my muses

we posters post for posterity

we posters are a unique crew
wide and varied are our views
respectful, mostly, to each other
you’re my new sisters and brothers
we post for
the challengewriter

the challenges too
it’s pretty exciting
to get
to know you
sharing our goals
our art
and opinions
baring our souls
and our writing
ambitions
we’re a whole
world united
in our right to
excitement

engagement,
involvement
just venting, just words
we need likes, we need comments,
we have that in common,
and we need to be read or

 we need to be heard
and, at least it’s true for me,
we posters post for posterity
a desire to have our names live on
after our fortunes are gone

wee posters are some other guys
too small to see with the naked eye
they post from tiny laptops
to an alter-internet
but for now that’s all i’ll say..
…that’s another post for another day…
so today that’s all you’ll get.
