Drag pen across paper,
Decisively mark a first step,
Onto an empty road.
Breathe in a moment,
Feel what is,
And do what comes naturally.
As the world sighs beyond that open window.
As line of flame dancing up a dry twig’s back.
As moths flutter above your flickering light of inspiration.
Even when a multitude of others do not understand the craving within.
Twist the incessant thoughts that spill like superheated metal spraying across your attention.
As emotion drives you to the very edge of madness and desperation to know how these stories will end.
Starting with the view that sits before you each day and every day that continues to dawn.
Breathe in successive moments,
Honor this overwhelming cacophony,
Embrace the natural.
Embark upon the less known road,
Open your mind to what is,
Meet pencil to paper.
