Once upon a time,
I wrote a little rhyme.
It didn’t take much time,
And then I sold it for a dime.
And now I’m rhyming things in verse.
A heavenly gift or just a curse?
Rhymes neither take from nor add to my purse,
And suppose they could not get any worse.
So really then reader, what should I do?
Keep putting these rhymes out into view?
And to my imaginative self be true?
Oh, I simply haven’t any old clue!
If I would put these rhymes on my blog,
Would you put me in stocks and then flog?
Because it seems that whatever (for better or worse),
My mind just keeps spinning and working in verse.
Creativity is such an important facet and part of the human experience, actively participating in the on-going creation of the universe. “Creation” did not end abruptly with the Big Bang or at the stroke of midnight of the Seventh Day. Creation is never-ending and continues every second of every day.
When we allow our minds and abilities to expand, whether creating new works of literature, art, theatre, music, or a new flavor for a cupcake icing, we are actively participating as collaborators in creation, and enriching the world not only for ourselves but for others, as well.
Unsure what to do? Simply be still and allow your inner voice to guide you!
