Shades of sadness
Hues of happiness
our palette of humanity.
The process of blending emotions
is the making of our heart.
We cannot just tear apart the canvas
as if to remake ourselves
in a new color.
Casey Kochmer July 2006
The words I just blurted out were from watching a friend struggle with a relationship.
Our humanity is always an unfinished work.
So much I would like to teach, however, like this poem: enlightenment, peace, heaven arise from an inner artistry out-flowing from the expression of living.
