The following piece of poetry is a short piece originally published during April (National Poetry Month) 2012. It speaks to the need, in an SEO driven market, to continue to nurture and develop creativity.


For National Poetry Month #14


If I could, I would create a marketplace

for the sale of creativity,

A place where I could go and buy 2 scoops

on days when nothing moves easily.

I would watch it melt

Across the page

to see

what patterns would emerge.

      I enjoyed this poem and I would love the concept brought to life - you could go out and buy a scoop whenever you wanted a bit of a creative lift.

      Thats a great idea! Wish there was such a store sometimes. Or such a product we could just buy. It would probably be really expensive though
