Poem - Art Emerges

The poem “Art Emerges” was inspired by the lines “Your art is your very life.  Without it, you’re no different from anybody else.“ This is attributed to the movie The Story of the Last Chrysanthemum (1939) by Keni Mizoguchi.


Art Emerges

Art emerges as the grace
separating each in a race
towards gulfs far beyond
reach of actions feeding fame

just one chance to exceed
perhaps more if life concedes
that recognition forever lost
when torch of life is run out

smoldering fires are the norm
without the flames that dance about
those blazes seen in a flash
will extinguish when darkness falls

until that time the artist’s skill
may evoke differences
between plebes of the day
and those seeking to exclaim.
