The heart of an artist.

loft alone well feed by bread and water

every penny spent is meant

to end craving beyond hunger

moments of spirit realized

in the joy of canvas and paint

hands to clay sustain 

the artist starving

in creative way.

Nicely written poem, an unfortunate reality for many creative individuals alike. The early years of struggle. Fortunately nowadays, there are many more oppunities compared to the past. Excellent work ????
