is a prayer

For the realization of our integration with

the web of creation

and for the transformation  of our species

from one gripped in fear and self annihilation

to a species that stands for love,

wildly creative peace, and liberation.


Art can be worship and service.

The incandescent core of our soul,

A glowing God's eye,

infinitely aware of the beauty of creation,

Is interlocked with a network of souls,

part of one vast group soul.

The group soul of art beyond time

comes into time 

By projecting music and symbols

    Into the imagination.

God's radiant grace fills the heart and mind

with these gifts.

The artist honors the gifts of sound and vision

by weaving them into works of art

and sharing them with the community.

The community uses them as wings

to soar to the same shining vistas and beyond.


Translucent wings teem with eyes of flame

    on the mighty cherub of Art.

Arabesques of fractal cherub wings enfold

    and uplift the world.

The loom of creation is anointed

    with fresh spirit and blood.

Phoenix-like, the soul of art,

    resurrects from the ashes of isms.

Transfusions from living primordial traditions

empower the artist.

Take them to the heights and depths

    Necessary to find the medicine of the moment,

A new image and song of the Infinite One,

 God of Creation

Manifesting effulgently,


With the same empty fullness

     that Buddha knew

And the same compassionate healing

    that Jesus spread.

Krishna plays his flute

 the Goddess dances

And the entire tree of life vibrates

    with the power of love.

A mosaic and tilemaker inspired by Rumi

    finds infinite patterns of connectivity

In the garden of spiritual interplay

As the World Spirit awaits its portrait.
