Kid Lost In Story

What’s the difference between a kid at play and an artist lost in art? Give up?  Maybe me too….

Kid Lost In Story
by Michael Romani

Hand sketched
And mentally stretched
The artist knows her caper
Put down as it on paper

A kid lost in her story
Lost in playground of glory
Sculptures of fantasy
Adrenaline in ecstasy 

Building blocks
Played on the rocks
This is how children learn
In an oceanic energy burn

Too much of the world preconstructed
In ways imposing rules instructed
Restrictive and a bit of percussion
Hellbent toward creativity's destruction

It can't be understood
Any other way
It's just no good
To get in our way

Part and pieces fit together
Never worse, always better
When we let these things flow
And this, my child, is how we grow

It's okay to do it all wrong
It's how we find where we belong
There in those awkward moments
That make us smile at all that's meant
