old wise artist

to the old wise artist
you passed down 
to me a skill 
a gift
the gift of art 
of experimenting 
of perfecting the craft
without criticism 
without scepticism 
all the while
preaching nothing but
yeah, Bill 
you took me under your wing
you taught me things
you taught me how to see
the world a bit differently
and for this 
I thank you
