Keep Imagining

Elaborate, the tree forts
imagination envisions

Indifferent, the rationale
that overpowers inspiration

I balk, abandon hope,
build a wall instead,

Creativity is not linear,
tolerates input, planning,
some alternatives preferred.

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.

  1. Absolutely! My (much) younger tree-climbing self would have been up there in no time.So many footholds. Really great shot!
    I agree…creativity is not linear. A few steps forward. Few steps back. Side road. Patience is a challenge though.
