[The Heart of Art]
By: Sadhika NANDA (Chan Sui Kau Hall)
Her cascade of hair flowed like poetry
While her words swam about like a melody-
All she needed were his eyes- that calm sea
With his smile which was awakening electricity.
She asked him sweetly, “Do you love me?”
He smiled a thousand watts and said,
“If I didn’t, would you at peace be?”
A furrowed brow she had, “You, I shall never wed.”
His laughter filled the forest for he knew they were a “we”.
It was then, that the Master realised:
His chaparral creation was a true beauty.
It had forever immortalised
The love He had for His wife- His one and only duty.
A gaping step back He took,
To admire that which He knew not He could create.
For He had played nothing by the book-
But voilà! An epiphany: art is not a thing to premeditate.
