artist's awakening

you can find her kneeling on the floor 
apron smeared with past inspirations 
she waits in silence as he comes 
whispering in her ear, painting on her heart 
she stands, picks up her sword 
tearing down strongholds with decisive strokes 
a cry has gone out to the artists 
you are released! 
intercession - imagination - revelation 
she was created for this 
pouring herself out onto the canvas 
passion - intimacy - purity 
the colors tell the story of her heart 
so brilliant inside, they only imitate 
a vision has been imparted 
entrusted to her awakened spirit 
she will not rest until the world has seen it
