Soul Portrait

If God grant me any gift of creativity, may I be a willing-hearted artisan, giving that gift back, reflecting His glory, humbled by any part He allows in an expression of life.

There is always something

niggling to get out,

some phrase, some scribble,

some soul utterance

that tells part of my story,

reveals a little hint

as to who I have been,

who I am, and who I am

becoming, and I wonder

of Van Gogh and Michelangelo

Emily and Frost, 

Beethoven and Mozart,

Dostoevsky and Dickens, 

tellers of life able

to express a little

of self and connect

to a truth that reveals

something inherent

in all of us, and I long

to be that kind of artist,

to give something

that connects to others

who for a moment can say,

“Ah, someone else feels

that same way, too.”

And, even more than that,

to reflect the glory and love

of the Giver of life.
