Playing with light
Shades, colors, shapes and
Matter, eyes of photographers
Just like those of painters –
Though using different tools –
Diligently portray Nature’s miracles,
From microscopic to gigantic,
Through the intense prism
Of their focused lenses.
As do words of writers or poets,
Images extend beyond eyes’ reach.
They tirelessly break under the surface.
Behind each piece of art –
Words or shapes – there is a story
And you are at liberty to emancipate
From what you see. Stitch it up,
Explore, push boundaries,
Let your soul fly free.
Artists’ minds scout into hearts –
Tackling events at their core,
Lifting up veils,
Layering tales, mystifying worlds –
They create myriads of lores
Passed down by folks.
Readers, art enthusiasts,
And chance passers-by are
The real artists.
Their attentive numbers
And exerted eyes constitute
The numerous witnesses,
Who channel art to life. Work nears
Meaninglessness, if it does not reach out.
