Creativity

reality is – its your own

expression – you can do it through

a range of forms – music, dance, photography, or art

the choice is really down to you

if you want to make something – do it

versatility is the name of the game

indeed, what you make could be read, listened to, watched or eaten

there’s a host of things you could do to showcase your talent

you never know, if you don’t give it a try

raiding the scraps and material boxes

and producing something special

for the loved ones in your life

that mean so much to you

A colourful place

Imaginary

The seeds of creativity

come from a blank page

ideas held in seed form

spread and grow in the mind

a pencil, sandwich and cream soda

the architects tools

as rainbows cast across lemonade seas

marshmallow clouds and fudge trees

provide perfect plates

for a teddy bears picnic

Filling in the Blanks

Blank

The scroll of paper

was pinned to the wall

ready for action

 

It remained as it was

for a number of minutes

as little thinkers – Thought

 

Blank white paper

with nothing to say

but – “FILL ME IN”

 

Suddenly a word, two or three

accompanied by colours diagrams and pictures

explode from the white – Reds Greens and Blues

 

Ideas, Opinions, Conceptions

filling up the space

forming a finished picture

 

And with Masterpiece complete

the story presented

The picture is stored away for safe keeping

 

Revealing – Another Blank Space
