Blessings from Play

Joy I find in art comes
from visceral connection
to doing intuitively
and watching images
form from actions I make.

Blending of deliberate and
random (for lack of a better word)
additions and distortions
of line, shape, and color,
brings happiness unbound
I can’t always hold in.

It spills over in tears from
someplace I can’t name, yet
intuitively appreciate
that it’s a God thing.

Poem #19 for National Poetry Month. Finishing up May 1, but still close enough for me.
