"Living Presence" (by Joe DiMino)

If said, I do not love art
would be no small lie…
but paramount
against an artist’s truth
the first expression of which
is a desire
for loving…

loving those who create
as much as I love the Creator
The artist of all artists
clays and oils into living medium
infused a spirit
His soulful canvas
painting and writing
our destinies—

Ah! Destiny?
What gallery
had He unleashed!
so misunderstood
the predetermined
only for those
who freely play
and not for those
who simply pray
nor for those
who author and paint
of another day
the most original art
of presence…
