Dribble

Creativity dribbles from my soul in spurts of creativity sometimes.

Words dribble off the gold trimmed page
Like treacle.
Some portions have a darker tinge
Due to the struggle
Creativity finds in soaring.

Stoke the Fire

Many distractions try to inhibit or completely cut off my creative  impulses – but I know that my creativity is a God given Holy Spirit inspired gift, that God has given me to compensate for the struggles I have had to face within my life’s journey.

Weeds have their anorexic knuckles
Clasped around my melancholy neck.
Ready to wrench my head clean off my body –
In a vane attempt  to stop
My creativity flowing through my extremities –
Because it knows my soul needs to stoke
The fire of passion to do more than just exist.
Oh weeds loosen your death grasp.
My passion fire is too strong.
Words nourish my soul.

I need to write daily or else

Margaret Alden:

I have to write daily – if not, it’s like my whole body is drained of its life. I have to let my soul fly free and let the words dribble on the page like honey from the Gods. I have to write daily because it is God’s gift to me. I know I’ve got the writing bug because if I don’t write, I’m not whole.

Fragments

True stillness takes time.

Stuck with words lodged in my brain.
Like bullet fragments not quite the same again.
When darkness fell, like a blanket covering my mind.
I knew stillness would never be a friend of mine.
