The Powerfully Creative Mind

Abstract View
Abstract View

There is nothing stopping
Creative minds true core
The twists and turns combining
Into stuff of myth and lore

The pen onto the paper
The thread into the cloth
Nothing close can taper
Creative mind and thought

As brush resorts to canvas
And hands to molding clay
A pool of beauty so vast
Nothing gets in the way

Creative mind is strong
It leads to many places
Hidden from the mundane view
In tiny cracks and spaces

Every thought and feeling
Every sight and sound
From lowest ground to ceiling
Creativity can be found

So when you think the world is barren
Only seen in black and white
Just take a look around you
Open up your sight

You see it in the books you read
Buildings you survey
People of all colors and creeds
Creative minds display

There is no substitute for creative activity. Nothing else can fulfill the needs that it does.
