Today I am

Maia Brown

by Lola Koundakjian, translated by Maia Brown

Today I am a gallery;
my walls breathing colour,
inviting ideas from the shadows
into the visiting light of the present.

Today I am a book,
worlds recalled between my pages;
lives exchanged and invigorated,
crafting the everyday anew.

Today I am a page of paper;
paint teasing my surface,
the touch of eyes and hands
guiding the intimate dance
of the brush.

A vision:
             alive
                    exposed

Today, I am art.
