God Says Yes To Me

God Says Yes to Me
by Kaylin Haught
from The Palm of Your Hand © 1995

I asked God if it was okay to be melodramatic
And she said yes

I asked her if it was okay to be short

And she said it sure is

I asked her if I could wear nail polish

Or not wear nail polish

And she said honey

She calls me that sometimes

She said you can do just exactly

What you want to

Thanks God I said

And is it even okay if I don’t paragraph

My letters

Sweetcakes God said

Who knows where she picked that up

What I’m telling you is

Yes yes yes

Many thanks to my friend Laurel, who introduced me to this juicy poem!

    My artist date was yesterday. The experience ties into saying "YES" to life and art. I attended a reception and new art exhibit for my back yard neighbor who is a painter and highly regarded artist in PA. He published lots of his art in a book called Keven Kutz's Lincoln Highway. You can also see more of his art (many pieces were later destroyed in a fire at the building where he had his studio), at:

    Kevin's art is labeled with K.K. Be sure to go to p. 2!

    His most recent work which was on display at a local Bedford, PA gallery called Cabin Creek, is not shown and is very different, 3 dimensional collage style. He has been inspiring to me all along and is a model of saying 'yes' to making the most out of what life hands you, paying attention, moving on despite disasters, depression and grief, working with new materials, recycling common objects into fantastical art pieces, overcoming personal obstacles and trying unusual techniques.

    I am blessed to have close contact with an artist who is living his art. I don't feel a need to compare or compete, but I can see how he has embraced many of the principles from The Artist Way path and is making a living and a life with his art. Kevin is also an accomplished musician (fiddle & banjo) and plays with local music groups. I hear him practicing from my back yard swing and occasionally we have him over to jam in our music room.

    Star*, saying "yes!" to my budding artist today!

    Star! That sounds so wonderful! I am going to include that URL here as a link so everyone can easily pop over and see his beautiful art.

    What a fabulous neighbor to have. I love that he is also musical. So often, creatives are multi-talented like that!

    And Laurel! I had forgotten she was coming here. SOOOO sorry I missed her; I am just LOVING her book! Thank you so much for sharing it with me – I am in love with it!

    Love this! You are the best for posting it!. My inner voice calls me Sweetie sometimes -so much nicer that negative self-criticism. It’s the kind of thing you keep to yourself – until I found your wonderful poem here – I can so relate to this – thank you!!What a fun piece!xxx
