This Is Art

(if you want it to be)
                              for Edgar Degas

“Art is not
what you see,
but what you
make others
see.” Art is
             walking on the wild side
             of alpha through omega.
             Art is a confession
of the love
& beauty
that resides
within my
soul, waiting
             to escape like a wail
             of optimism in blue
the history
of our own
             heartbeats reverberating as one.
