You Have The Ticket: Now Take The Trip


Everything in a work of art is an act of will.
The oceanic immensity of the human mind at work.
Consider black birds, Greek sibyls, plums.
Merely things until fired by imagination,
but then raised to the level of sublime.
Take the shards of life you are given.
Kiss them with your creative lips.
They will speak aloud as something greater.
A cat, a touch, a sunrise, an Emu, a look.
So many places to begin your quest.
Write down your truth from what you know.
Consider this a voyage. Be glad to be on board.
