I am an artist of the world
I painted the day and the night
I sculpted the mountains with my bare hands
I welded lava to the earth’s core
I inked the rain clouds with a pen
I watered the western sky with a brush

I stole the desert sands and put them with the sea
I carved the fishes gills so they could breathe with me
I collaged the soils’ of color
I mixed the seas’ foam
I sketched the northern lights
I colored the horizon

I need the sun to guide my path
I bask in the moon’s shadow
I swim in the starlight
I dance in a meadow of lilacs
I float on a sea of creativity
I am an artist of the world.
