Dear Radiant Being,
This is a poem that expresses a little bit of who I Am…

With love and radiance,

Aja

I Am the Artist 

By the waters in the dark cave I lie.
I am the Artist who dreams at the forgotten well of love,
and rises from her dreams to begin.
My fingers spread like flames,
shapes glow on the walls of the cave, as I paint.
I am the Artist who paints visions passionately.
Feeling color in a new way.
The invisible side of color,
Light planted in the jeweled core.
I am the Artist who frees what is under,
what is below, what is beyond.
I am the Artist who receives new worlds in the darkness,
and declares her visions complete.
My instincts, like diamonds, cutting through dis-belief.
I am the Artist who believes in the beauty I see,
and lights up the darkness with belief.
I am the Artist who understands love each day a little more, as I paint.
Along the cave’s spiraling path upwards, I proceed.
I am the Artist who comes out of the cave, eventually.
I rub my eyes in the sun and people ask me,
Who are you?
Where do you come from?
I am the Artist who creates a new language,
when I answer them.
I am the Artist who loves, instead of fears.
I am the Artist who begins her work here.
Remember, my friends,
with a paintbrush of fire,
you express desire,
with a paintbrush of wind,
you experience vast visions,
with a paintbrush of water,
you are the ocean’s daughter,
with a paintbrush of earth,
you caress the bones of birth.
I am the Artist who loves, instead of fears.
I am the Artist who begins her work here.
I am the Artist who dreams at the forgotten well of love,
and rises from her dreams to begin!
