Form Spirit Mystery

"As the spirit wanes, the form appears"
-Charles Bukowski

I have noticed that as I focus more on form, more on structure...
I am less eveloped in the mystery.

There are of course obvious benefits to structure and form, but these elements can be obstacles to mystery.

There is nothing wrong with mystery. Sometimes you are captivated and you don't know why.

But even a mystery can be a meal that benefits from leaning, pruning...

How to prune the mystery as it remains elusive even to the artist?

Not sure.
