Broad Canvas/Narrow Focus

mural 2

If one becomes too fixated

On any one particular thing

At one particular time

To the exclusion of everything else

Surrounding the frame around one’s life walk

mural 3 

One can paint the outside surface of the frame

Paint the door jamb

And miss the dingy outside edges

Now in stark contrast

To a freshly painted wall

mural 1

Just as we can become so embroiled in minutia

As to miss the bigger picture

Eyes on a portion pleasing

And miss the panoramic entirety of the mural

Even as it miraculously, mysteriously unfolds

new dimensions …

before us

 within us

mural in progress
