The Beauty of Everyday Things

The Earth births elements of life
from tumultuous fire and molten lava.
Moments of peace or passion last for decades or millennia.

With reverence
an artist may create with resource of the Earth.

Reflections of peace or passion
are enjoyed in moments
which together are the expression
and sum of life.
