The Creative Process

October 8, 2008

Creative mind never sleeps.
The genius from within
Overwhelms without a warning,
Begging for a chance to be thrown out into the world.

The Artist destroys, recreates and changes
Until completely satisfied with the result.
And then a new idea comes to light...
No rest for the talented soul!

To create something out of nothing,
That is the Artist's calling:
His destiny, His blessing and His curse.

The author's comments:
I tried to put into a poem what happens when the talent strikes, and how a huge urge comes to create something out of nothing, to write, or paint.
