Elise Ricks, Dragon. Colored pencils on paper, 3″ x 3″.  January 2014.

Imagination, trapped by coltish art
That called on universals gleaned from speech
And writings, drawings – hauntings from the heart
Of generations lost, and out of reach.
An inspiration born as much from self
As other – why would younger artists take
Their subjects off a crowded, dusty shelf,
And stand them up, to see what they can make
That wasn’t made a thousand years ago?
What makes them want to make it real again –
Perhaps the thing itself? What do they know,
Who hear the dragon whispering yes, you can…
…and now begin. And look now – here am I.
I’m really here. Keep going. I can fly.
