Michelangelo

PAD Challenge day 4: For today’s prompt, pick a painter,

 and then, write your poem.

because only this
leaves us full-awed
the sacred tryst
twixt man and God

...and only this
since time began
Bridges the rift
Twixt God and man

...and only this
fuels the fire
that puts God's kiss
on man's desire

Self for self
Or man for man
Can never inspire
What God can
