Enablers

I was looking at a painting of windmills at sunset
when all the rose and gold and purples
reflect off the water and turn these
clumsy awkward looking things
into a romantic picture.

Yes some things that look so ridiculous,
like ourselves at times,
can hide a deeper dimension
which only can be seen through
eyes looking for beauty
in the mundane and the absurd circumstances
and landscapes of our lives.
If we look past the expected,
to see what the changing light reveals
then what we experience can
leave its impression on our souls.
We as artist then try to express
in music or in words
on canvas or film
these revelations
To share these discoveries
with our world
big or small
so that we might enable
you to notice
these magic moments
all around us too.
