Worship Art or No Art

Worship Art or No Art



       Speak of God as a necessity,

finding peace in the wilderness of

eternity, shining.


       Speak of God not as an artifact

of the uneducated past,

knowing the greatest poets and philosophers

struggled, even if flawed, with letting in the light.


       Open the richest of intellectual dimensions

through obedience to truth,

giving honour to art that outlives

more than one season,

as bloodlines are cut, cultures revolutionized,

and heroic forgiveness

is seen as paramount, the holy grail

of our strivings.
