    Inside the temple
    Artistic beauty is taking place
    A treasure unfolding
    In this most sacred place

    Mixing sweet, warm paint
    With a long stroke brush
    Creating a picture
    Best kept hush hush

    Words are not needed
    As the painting comes alive
    The brush strokes boldly
    Painting the temple from side to side

    The brush is guided by the artist's hand
    Enhancing his creativity
    Needed for the temple's intricacy
    Helping him feel what he cannot see

    So pleased to paint this temple
    After such a long, long wait
    The artist only needs his brush
    The temple provides its own heavenly paint

    The brush dips deeply into the temple's base
    Absorbing the paint which stirs at the bottom
    This paint, the temple's liquid of truth
    He skillfully moves his soaked brush upward
    He sweats as he paints the temple's roof

    With adventurous skill he paints with a passion
    His brush finding places not painted before
    The temple takes on a life of its own
    The painter's brush still looking for more

    Complete was his work
    His brush exhausted
    Smiling, he lays in a restful position
    An artist in love lives for such a commission

    I'm convinced

    that the intrinsic joy derived from the artistic process is equal to the thrill and gratification experienced at the unveiling of the "finished product". :)

    Quite the master painter, you BE. :heart:
