How Can One? - by - Bob Atkinson

How Can One?
(c)2016 Bob Atkinson

how can one translate form
from idea to canvas norm
some twinkle in an eye open
or smile with smirk shown grin

where does talent infuse itself
to hands which hold artist's brush
sending imagination away
capturing drama of everyday

don't know if have ever seen
myself create this sweetest dream
not standing in front of that train
while holding images in my brain

perhaps he knew well his calling
studied masters, faultless darlings
kept discipline in his mind
and worked there on art's grind

worked until our sun went down
dreamed about some worthy crown
of sentiment awarded to him
by those who found him truly useful
