BECOMING

Shape
substance first
and let it grow solid,
as you form it,
with a touch you hone
as it becomes rehearsed enough
that your light streams
much better through it
that it could
from your nature’s raw materials alone,

though the aching plainness
and rigid discipline
at first
feel to your bright creative process
so accursed.

But,
once substance
and its structures
are generated,
and firm gathered,

then
can you
more aptly start
start to craft embellishments
in such a way that they express
as well as suit
your inner mood,
and sculpt your style,
or whatever else that matters,

with your trademark brand
of generosity,
to take that basic skeleton
which stands sturdy, supplely,
and make it timely,
fitting to a tee
what you deem relevant,
with whatever stuff
you muster up,
with which
to have it further plastered,
molded, etched or slathered.
