A MASTERPIECE IN THE MAKING

 

Yesterday I was surprised, I was amazed…I was elated

to have the privilege of watching a masterpiece of art being created.

 

I sat next to the artist…and again I was in awe

as he put his pencil to his paper…and he began to draw.

 

And I began to smile…then I began to stare

for never have I seen a pencil move so fast..

with so much grace…

and so much flair.

 

He told me what he was drawing…was it a fire engine…or a bird

but the artist is just learning my language…and I didn’t understand a word.

 

His inspiration ended quickly…as inspirations sometimes do…

His masterpiece completed…

in a minute…

maybe two.

 

And again I was surprised and amazed at his generosity

for without a thought about it…he gave his masterpiece to me.

 

As he ran out of the room…this thought occurred to me…

When he does become a famous artist I can say…

I knew him when we was three.
