Marks on paper

flight
            Fire, John Lyons (acrylic on paper)

Marks on paper

or on canvas
that hold
the energy
of the stroke

muscular
action art
creating shapes
in space

adding colour
that activates
the retina induces
a reaction
a change

starlight depicts
warm starlight
with movements
that alter
the cosmos

just as silence
is sound
sometimes richer
than any melody

words driven
by the power
of thought
and feeling

a beauty that stirs
passions within
body and soul
nothing human
ever lifeless

John Lyons
