Friday is the day of the week to let my creativity flow. I reserve time every Friday morning to do some brain storming. Creativity thrives on these mornings. At least, that is what I like to believe for myself.
How important is this time for me? As a writer and photographer, it’s essential to collect some time to do some thinking about creative processes. Or maybe it’s just to calm my mind.
This morning I had a good morning. Instead of thinking too much, I launched a new website (Dutch only, sorry). But the trouble is, this took up so much time, that I didn’t get the chance to really write for The Ministry of Poetic Affairs. Still, creativity thrives. That is what this poem is all about.
It boils, it wants to get out
A sense of excitement, without a doubt!
I embrace my creativity
while caressing it as little child
It’s such a festivity!
But sometimes it’s drives me wild
I need to think things over,
how not to fall down
and see this creativity of me, without a frown
not as a hostile takeover
Breath in, breath out,
just relax and go about
the things I want to do,
and even need to!
This is me, consulting my soul
to find out how my creativity can thrive
Without it being a heavy toll,
for then I wouldn’t be able to survive
Think, think, think,
Slow steps or just running ahead
with just one blink
I fall down, going mad
Take it easy, just relax
Go back to where you came from
do it again, creating new tracks
All for a creative outcome.
So, question to you: what about your creativity? Care to share some thoughts on this issue?
