releasing the creation

– Breathing life into the clay was the easy part for you – The concept and the vision and the dream all realized in an instant – The ceiling in the city of the Pope tells the story – The painting is not about creating but of releasing the creation into the world – Allowing what was fully yours to slip away from your outstretched fingers – The creation must have been the simple part – Just a twist and a turn and a little here and a little there and it was done as you imagined – But did you know where it would lead when you started – What would happen when you let it go – Like the bird released from the cage that left for good and really was not ours in the first place –
