The Creative Zone

Venture you now,

Where words dare not,

And feelings vanish completely,

Walk quiet lanes with egoless thoughts,

Where creative sparks of life are spawned.

Before the words, there’s an inkling of something. As yet it can’t be defined, and we walk around with it for a while. Then it happens like a shockwave, and we are taken along for the ride.

    • Thank you. I was a little unsure. It was kind of a stream of consciousness thing.

  5. i’m just glad there’s someone else out there who’s directive with herself in those stream of conscious moments: “venture… walk,” both imperatives! i know i have to push myself to take those risks that might reveal a moment or an image. thanks for writing.

    • Thank you for your comments. Life is all about risks. I have tried so many things in mine. I thought I was a coward till my mother surprised me by saying I was braver than anyone!

    • Thanks for stopping by! Yes, unfortunately it is, but change can only happen when we understand the history of what brought us here. Then we can talk about what we should do and then do it.

  19. Taking those thoughts when they arrive unassembled and arranging them in the semblance of a poem takes some doing. Nicely done.

  23. Writing for me takes on a more feverish quality most of the time but on rare occasions, the metaphors take me along for a lazy carpet ride. :). I love this poem
