Poetry: “Creative choice”

More musing on creativity and how we all create.


Creative choice


Writing a poem at 2 am

Staying up to write a book

Drawing a face at 8 am

Spend a day to paint something


Taking your time to mull about

The subject that you choose

Making a split decision that

Changes all that you have done


Using a brush so carefully

Adding shadows and a gleam

Using a spatula or your hand

To make a great big smear


Letting your best pen slide across

An artisan crafted page

Scribbling like mad with a biro

On the back of an old receipt


Spending a class just doodling

Making art that makes you proud

Sit there in front of an empty page

And your laptop craves your touch
