Quest’s Arts Bay, a poem
Location? Quest’s Arts Bay,
Red Tusk, 4th floor,
right next to the second staircase.
Brushes rest against each other
in paint splattered jars,
and color pencils sit softly in drawers,
waiting for the moment a student wanders in
during open hours to make art.
Lines of purple pastel bloom across
large pieces of paper, vibrant, fragile, beautiful –
to make art is to live,
by living you become a piece of art.
Picture this, art beyond boundaries,
art inspired by never-ending mountains
capped with snow and ever changing foliage.
Three content people watching
the sun set behind the Tantalus Ridge,
and the darkened face of a mountain.
Though we be but small,
we’re mighty – silver threaded cotton clouds,
a smattering of butterflies –
art does nothing but live and thrive here at Quest.
We’re placing rocks and dirt
into rounded glass walls – a home
for a plant
