You do not need a pearly-white canvas
to create a work of art,
for art is simply an embodiment
of the knowledge one imparts.
You may have but a scrap of lined paper,
or a box of old pastels--
this is enough, for the tools don’t matter;
it's whether the art excels.
The blue lines on your scrap of paper
are flat earth for you to sculpt,
enchanting landscapes and scenery
are to emerge as a result.
Your old pastels are your handy tools
with which you are hew
a mythical sculpture that’s one of a kind,
original and new.
So, whether you’re planning to compose a song,
carve an image on wood,
decorate a mantel, sew a dress,
or do anything else you could,
before you do, just remember:
you don’t need tools to make art.
You only need a creative boost
that comes straight from the heart.
