Needing to write poetry, but running out of ideas - a poem about creativity.
|A most insightful human being,
Acknowledged to have one
Of the most fabulous skill sets;
An uncommon wisdom rife
With imagination, honor, precision,
And unparalleled visions -
To a writer, inventor, or businessperson;
Or to a warrior engaged in a highly competitive,
Grueling, and instinctive debacle...
Triumphant, astute trooper
Known as creativity...
These prodigious men and women
Seem a stone's throw away
From embarrassment or shame,
Yet are fully engaged in that unique realm
Of demands, needs, and desires,
Whose immediacy and will
Must be placated
To achieve a highly sought-after
Reward, advantage, or gain.
Their stress-laden struggles
From their kind and gratifying spark;
A completely new and thought-provoking idea
So special and rare
That angels appear to be dancing overhead.
