Thank you, Merril D. Smith, for suggesting than an erasure poem might fit the prompt. I found an article by Maria Popova on Brainpickings, about art being omnipresent, but not recognized or visible as such. It is about the biography of Walt Whitman by John Burroughs. She calls it more than a biography.
Here’s the link to the original article, which became my canvas to create, to carve a poem out of it.
Here’s the poem (I have added the word, ‘invisible’ in italics at one place, to give context)
Art is both
foreground and background
the wheel that propels
constellation of beliefs and sensibilities
seers who imagine
the way the world changes
not an island,
but the water that washes all shores.
art – not an “enclosure,”
but the human spirit.
a powerful impression
a great artist creates taste
to call forth and bestow power,
of which knowledge is the effect;
The new man is impossible (invisible)
till he appears
we demand of the new man
authentic inspiration and power
we cannot put him down
the new man makes room for himself
by which he is appreciated
the rules of art
by which he is to be judged
