                                        Colors, moods of pigment call to the artist
                                        Line, moods of movement call to the dancer
                                       Substance, moods of form call to the sculptor
                                       Sound, moods of timbre call to the musician
                                      Words, moods of expression call to the poet
                                                                    … and so a story be told
                                                                    a vision be shared
                                                              a song be written
                                                       a decree declared…

David Gilmour - Red Sky At Night... in dialogue with Passion's Call to the Night...

Passion's Call to the Night
APOGEE Vibrational Art

entrancing be this rhythmic sounding
the night in its captivating calls

Listen to this night
Blue notes
Lilting tones
And light's refrain.

Night Rhythm
the cadence of the night sky
fervent hush ablaze.

When the night bears a light of red and gold
The story of Self be it told
When despair and desolation grasp the heart
It is the Self that allows all doubt to depart
The dark to hold light in its embrace
Upon its path Self shall ever you trace
Joyful be the moment known
When grace be Self in beauty shown
Red sky at night in melodic splendor
To its haunting lure willingly surrender
When the night bears a light of red and gold
The story of Self be ever told.

PINK FLOYD Echoes Part 1 Live at Pompei 1972

Shared in reverence, in revelation, in resolve... 
words echo within heart as I listened to his story...
 be this the counsel of the soul...

Give Way

webs of thought, echoes of time sound
the din of shocked sensibilities
what was, now is once more
hush, hush be the cry, the plea
free what is trapped deep within me
shed these shackles of shadow and despair
heed the cry for resolve and Creation's care
listen, listen, and there shall be heard
the search, the want of the guiding WORD
let there be a command of self whole and true
let the bonds of torment give way to light ever new.

"Every production of an artist should be the expression of an adventure of his soul." W. Somerset Maugham

"Every production of an artist should be the expression 
of an adventure of his soul." 
W. Somerset Maugham
Is it
Is it brush in hand and thought in heart
From which this painting has its start
Where comes this call I hear as mine
Word, color and form these gifts of time
Is it the Muse that summons the soul
Beauty be the quest, beauty be the goal
And when in completion a work is to be
Is it the Muse I hear in joyful reverie
Is it Truth that anoints each new day
With the knowing path of the spirit's way
Ever present this reach to do and create
Welcome I Truth, the Muse, Destiny and Fate
God be known in what I receive and give
This be the decree for each moment I live
Is it when faith and knowing jointly resound
That God and the Muse so freely are found
So be it brush or pen in heart, mind or hand
It is to be in the Creator's fullest command.

A Single Rose to Speak the Heart

A single rose to speak the heart...

Valentine's Day greetings to read, to share
Words holding to love, expressions of care
Hearts be they ever heard, in echoes true
The WORD in grace, in blessings ever onto you.

From D A R K N E S S ...

The Night calls to the Darkness and the Darkness calls to the Dawning Anew... and this the journey to...
Salvation... the ever present Light and Breath of BEING.
