The Energies of Windmills, Art

A well-wrought artwork, like the sun,
sends energies through tired eyes,
electrifying minds at rest,
to wake beyond what sense professed
and dream toward deeper truths expressed.

Windmills whirl like Starry Night,
conducting fervor through bleak skies,
igniting lamps throughout the lands
to surge past outlets' weak demands
and glow long since the moon disbands.

Thank artists and the engineers
for energizing unseen gears
turning currents toward those wires
binding endless needs, desires.
