Out of the earth

Plant, John Lyons (oil on wood)

Out of the earth

Out of the earth
           this pine wood
out of the earth
           these pigments
out of the earth
           the oils used
out of the earth
           the wooden brush
and bristles
           the artist too

out of the earth
           from stardust
to stardust
           this simple
           a smattering of light
in the darkness
           out of the earth
all life all love all art
           out of the earth

John Lyons
