Holding Hands With the Sun

Falling in love with art is an intimate construction within ourselves expressed both outwardly and inwardly.

Holding Hands With the Sun
by Michael Doyle

An experience of the narrative
Doodles swirled in declarative
Filling out the feels
An imaginative look reel by reel

Seeing things in the abstraction
All of the noise that provides distraction
Scrawling reveal the fantasy
Becoming ever clearer to you and me

Busily turning thinking into doing
Advocacy is exquisite in its moving
Melting glaciers make the points
In voices true enough to anoint

Life lived in glacial movement
Where what we need is improvement
Too simple in it's simplicity
Are the chosen moments of our complicity

Breaking off in our reflection
Are the things that escape detection
Until we look hard enough to see
Present in the explicitness of reality

Holding hands with the sun
Remembering the world as if we are one
Darkness is overcome by light
Looking for the positive in our sight

Here at the bottom of our hope
Is humanity strung along its rope
This is seen in our mirrored construction
In secrets told that speak our destruction

Quietly the unknown poet ranted
Life is too precious to be taken for granted
We are not lost in the after all
As the world awakes and heeds the call
