I am joyful

Standard

I am joyful when I create

when I shape a word

a phrase

a sound

I am joyful when I see a new image

a new picture of the possible

I am joyful when I give birth to a new evocation

I am joyful when I see a complete work

a oneness to celebrate

I am joyful with beauty

I am joyful when I am noticed

for my creation

for my contribution

I am joyful when someone sighs “Ah”

I am joyful when I mine my potential

when I tap into my gold

when I live up to my gifts

even for a moment

Then I am

spectacular

This is not a new poem, but I think it is the perfect answer to Cristian Mihai’s question: “I am an artist because…” (BTW If you haven’t found Cristian’s blog yet, it is well worth following.)
