the artist and the rest

sometimes
I think the world is split
between the artist
and the rest of us
we see a pink flower
but the artist sees a paradise
a world of lines and designs
cholorophyll highways
a playground for the ladybug
a feast for the bee
the artist sees
and the rest of us
mere mortals
observe his gift
