Eye of the beholder – Promote Yourself

blank canvas

A well known collector visited the art gallery today

Upon an easel it was displayed

Looked over well, peered into, scrutinized for flaws

And even the flaws were masterpieces, once given pause

I must have this, such passion I have never seen!”

He proclaimed:

By anonymous?

Does this artist have no name?

And if so, why be ashamed?”

And so he purchased it at great cost,

Covered it to protect it from dust.

The unveiling to be conducted at a later time,

At an event momentus…

When all the dignitaries and honored worldly guests were all present.

A fine linen sheet was drawn back to reveal,

A blank canvas…to astonished gasps and squeals

There written upon the canvas for only the purchaser’s eyes to see

Was this…

Return me to where you found me

I was not meant for you to see,

You are not known to Me.

I manifested for the benefit of the believer,

who stood looking over your shoulder behind thee,

it was he…

who was shown

who saw…

“eyes of living flames”

stood aside humbly

and painted me,
