The Artist

This night,
the land is bathed
with scent of coming rain,
storm-chased by wild clouds above
the path.

In awe,
the artist stands
transfixed by the beauty
as he wends his way uphill
to home,

his house
a solid shape
beneath the silhouette
of branches dancing in wind's
embrace.

One day,
paint on canvas
will imortalise it,
this fleeting moment in time,
this gift

which he
stores in his mind,
ready to begin work
as soon as daylight calls
"Morning!"

This week, I've used a detail (colour enhanced) from the Mark Haley image which Tess gave us for The Mag prompt today. It reminds me of a Constable painting...

    1. Methinks it's the moment in time, rather than the house, that he wants to immortalise... :)

  6. Jinksy, I like what yu did with this prompt, immortalizing the moment--after all, one of the "duties" of art, sculptoring and photography, IS to view a moment or thought which might go unnoticed, and reveal it in a perspective which will not be easily forgot.
    GoooD !

  19. I saw rain as well. It's the images like, dancing branches that make my thoughts linger. Excellent path. I am excited to get your feedback on mine this week, a bit of something different for me. Brought to life from one of my favorite Renn-Fest acts!
