Hushed voices of other pilgrims near, pause,
And thankfully move on, leaving me to my reverie.

Standing back I see intention.

Stepping close my vision is engulfed
In extra- dimensional brilliance.

This no print can interpret.

Unbidden, a smile broadens my face,
As my eyes dance across paint laden canvas.

Not fully sated I step back, other pilgrims here,
a few feet away another to revere.
