Impermanent Art

Impermanent art
sidewalk drawings
sculptures in the woods
sky writing
pay attention now
or you will miss it all.

Our museums are full
of art created long ago
but even that is not forever.

The hair-raising
tear falling final notes
of a great symphony
heard, then gone

Life is filled with art
man-made and natural.
It is up to us to savor it
let it add joy to our lives
for all that is beautiful and good
begins in our loving attention.
