The Vintage Man – Hafiz

Filed under: Poetry — by cerene @ 7:41 am

    The
    Difference
    Between a good artist
    And a great one

    Is:

    The novice
    Will often lay down his tool
    Or brush

    Then pick up an invisible club
    On the mind’s table

    And helplessly smash the easels and
    Jade.

    Whereas the vintage man
    No longer hurts himself or anyone

    And keeps on
    Sculpting
    Light.
