ART SCHOOL
by Michael Christianson

Life is where our Souls are sent to school.
Where we learn to appreciate our family's Love,
Where, from Love, we learn to create Meaning,
Where, through Love, we learn to share
our creation with others.

Life is where our Souls are sent to school.
Where we learn to appreciate the joys of this world,
Where our appreciation is sharpened by pain,
Where, from joy and pain, we learn to teach
creation to others.

Life is where our Souls are sent to school.
Where we are taught to evaluate body and spirit,
Where we are given a brief momement to paint with Time,
Where we give our creation to those we love, and
Graduate to a higher Art.

POSTSCRIPT

The Painting evolves with each Generation,
Drama, humor, compassion, wisdom,
Each contribution expanding our Vision;
Birthings and Passings - Life's integration
Passed forward to present in search of Creation.
