The Finest of Arts by Bob Atkinson


The Finest of Arts

(c)2012 Bob Atkinson

how would we describe to all
the finest of our arts and culture
would we be subjective dealing in
the calculation of those numbers?

appreciation beckons forward still
what mankind tenderd to the universe
in total form of new creations, those
pleasing objects proffered with chagrin

painting, sculpture, architecture
drama and poetry written also
with music, dance and theatre
combined with films of knowledge

place themselves at center stage
of this normal, natural world
becoming focal points of light
broad chaos not left undisturbed

must hold some meaning here
this thought of nature's progress
how do we place ourselves at core
with no reference for good judgment?

only flies into the face of reason
and of simple common sense
as we move forward grasping
this hard told moral question

do we have a mission here
to create from nothingness
forms which denote our existence
showing appreciation for life's gift?
