Soul Thirst

fingers strumming an instrument

wield power of a sacrament

soul-stirring

 

words jumping out of keyboards

influence mindsets of hordes

soul-changing

 

colors bleed on blank canvasses

in shapes that speak to masses

soul flowers

 

flavour, fragrance, taste at the core

whets all appetites for more

food for soul

 

art works to create new belief

soothe souls and provide relief

soul renews
