1. From the silence God created
Matter, movement, depth and height,
All the opposites evolving,
Spreading darkness, gifting light.
2. From our silence comes the birthing
Gifting hibernated dreams
Till our sleep becomes a waking
Filled with life’s creative streams.
3. In the rapture of this newness
Artists ride the breaking wave
Lining out with pen and paper
All that mem’ry cannot save.
4. After drafting comes the template
Turning parts into a whole,
Crafting, changing, rearranging
To attain the final goal.
5. God creating, God evolving
Every process, every part,
We give thanks for each outpouring
Found within all forms of art.
