Master of Artistry Totally Tuesday

The extravagant gesture is the very stuff of creation. 
Annie Dillard

Master of Artistry

I relished bright costumes full of patent pizzazz
Skirts and dresses of sparkling jazz
Wonderful, fantastic, delightful array
The sweetest conceptions of  a “dizzy-land” day.

However so darling, creative, and bright
Still cannot compare to the crafter of light
Who amazes us daily with gorgeous designs,
The face of the earth he loads and he lines

With figures, with shapes, with styles that delight us
Astound us, amaze us, amuse us—treat us
To glorious creations of plants and bright flowers
Which show in their beauty his marvelous powers,

His penchant for color is stirred into the picture
His fine sense of humor and a splash of adventure
No man holds a candle to what He can make
When the master of artistry shocks us awake.
