Infinite Art

Infinite Art
Michael Gollin

I live in a painting
Of infinite detail.
Green leaves gray bark
Blue sky white clouds
Washed in yellow sun rays.

I inhabit a sculpture garden
Of massive dimensions.
Tree trunks railings
Walls and doors.

I sit in a song
Of endless variety.
Bird cricket frog wind
Cars trucks jets
A train a dog a voice my breath.

My skin is caressed
with loving touch.
A breeze, the sun, raindrops.
My clothes embrace me.
I am at peace —
a piece of the art of the world.

I just added this to the Terminal Disease Cultural Collection https://innovationlifelove.org/a-terminal-disease-cultural-collection/ and thought it worth sharing:

-Thanks CCALS for reporting on Jon Imber. http://www.ccals.org/PDFs/newsletters/Newsletter-2014spring.pdf
-This is an amazing preview of a documentary about renowned painter Jon Imber, who kept painting right through the end of his struggle with ALS, switching to his left hand, and then to a brush fastened to his head. His last painting was the week he died in April 2014. http://www.bostonglobe.com/metro/2014/04/24/jon-imber-artist-kept-painting-with-exuberance-face-als/bQen0EjAUKD2veEeXwPvpL/story.html
He had an unquenchable zeal for life and beauty, and was part of a loving family and circle of friends that supported him, literally, in his work, holding him up while he painted.
See http://www.jonimber.com for examples of his exuberant, colorful work.
