You Sweep the Floor

Posted in Rumi with tags , , , , , , , , on November 3, 2017 by Mj Rains

The lord of beauty enters the soul
as a man walks into an orchard
in Spring.
Come into me
that way again!
Light the lamp
in the eye of Joseph. Cure Jacob’s
sadness. Though you never left,
come and sit down here and ask,
“Why are you so confused?”

Like a fresh idea in an artist’s mind,
you fashion things before they come into being.

You sweep the floor like the man
who keeps the doorway.
When you brush
a form clean, it becomes
what it truly is.

~from, You Sweep the Floor, by Rumi

A Visit to Lizland…part two

More works by inspirational goddess of art Liz Mamorsky.  She subtitles her studio work as “functional and dysfunctional art.”  I have to agree.  Here’s a few just to prove that nothing is impossible…

Ruby Turtle Spills Her Guts, 1998

Little Egypt...Mixed media wall sculpture

La Table Lavande, iconic abstract, 2005

Dancer, mixed media reindeer table

Lagomorphine, mix media robot wall sculpture, 2010

Have to confess…I like that reindeer table!  Call me weird….please….
