"Aftermath" 48x60x2 oil on canvas, Kathy Ostman-Magnusen
This is my time, anyone's time, to reach beyond what was understood yesterday, yes, reach beyond brilliant conclusions even. This is the day and perfect time. Stretch your mind as did Leonardo da Vinci and many famous artists have.
TURN ON THE MUSIC VIDEO TO READ MY POEM BELOW... SMILE
"Leonardo da Vinci - Scientist & Inventor Sculpt His Way Far Beyond Brilliant Conclusions"
There were melodies past the rhythm of the expected
that caused my heart to echo applauds.
I clapped my hands together for I'd found my space there.
A space that I'd been longing for.
I pulled off my mask
and all my mental clothes
felt the freedom of deliverance
embraced my zeal for creativity and my own being
to be known.
I will not be contained I screamed
Seducing the blaze that strokes the vintage stranger
Let me explore artists of yore
Warhol, Picasso, Klimt, Modigliani
my reaching and reasoning being.
I love their passion.
Matisse, remind me of the colors and set my instincts in focus.
Help me feel the pigments with the eagerness of a lover.
Let me call on Leonardo da Vinci
scientist and inventor
sculpting his way beyond brilliant conclusions.
The depth of him
botanist, architect, mathematician,
Illegitimate son of a peasant woman
back in the day when those roots
did not bring one
too many dimensions.
I will not be contained I scream
looking at da Vinci and where my own life
Ah Leonardo da Vinci what a mentor
dear muse you are.
This is my time
to reach beyond what was understood yesterday
yes, reach beyond brilliant conclusions even.
This is the day and perfect time.
The acquisition of knowledge
before us all.
stunning and how truly amazing
there directly in front of all of us.
