One brushstroke

One brushstroke           

He Who gifted the gifted -
every artist who ever existed -

is painting intently a portrait of existence
while nearby I stand, brush and palette in hand.

What new theme or rectification,
what shade and stroke dare I

contribute to His underlying expertise
when anything at all is a presumption

beyond my cramped judgment,
the less the better, an acknowledgement

and yielding to the authority, the vision, 
the omniscient artistry of the Master.

O child of God, forgo the temptation to add
even one brushstroke to God’s creation.
