The lightness of light and the light of lightness

The soft touch of ideal creativity
must be as light as light itself
and hardly even touching,
never pressing, beating or enforcing
but just letting it come true
alighting from all heaviness
in constantly increasing speed
of thought and new inventions
carried down from universal influence
to settle down in lasting works of art.
The touch is all and hardly more than just a touch,
enough to make a contact,
just enough to make a current
and electrify the process of creation,
like the God of Michelangelo’s creating Adam –
creativity is just a hint materialized,
the faintest touch of lightness,
light as light.
