of Creativity’s connectivity

L. B. Mek



All Art

Begins at that same starting line


Inspiration, whispering 

A feeling or destination, beyond

That we consider tangible 

Yet in reach of realism’s, fingertip 


The rest, is all excavation

Digging dip, further than we’ve ever 

Traversed, within imagination’s

Unfathomable, yet innately intelligible


So then, dear poet kin

Rejoice at that blank canvas and let us all

    • L. B. Mek

      forgive my belated reply, thank you Andy
      indeed, we have Began!

    • Mottakeenur Rehman

      The poem reminds us that creating art is not always easy, but that it is always worth the effort.

      • L. B. Mek

        indeed, so true dear poet
        worth the wait and all those waged wars
        with our delete button, lol

        how very clever and how very true .. but mostly, muchly enjoyed by this old fella too ..

        • L. B. Mek

          nicely done, Hyung
          who needs music when we can tap dance
          in-time, to your musicality's poetic rhymes
          I think we'd make for a good tennis match-up
          or a decent episode of chuckle brothers
          'to you, to me'
          'what a pair of old fellas, we be'

          L.B. So true. At times a spark appears, so trasitory,. If we can but catch it before it goes out. But then the work begins, to nurture it into a flame. Was it Einstein that said "it is one percent inspiration and nintynine percent perspiration"? How many times we loose the flame and have to start over from the ashes. Very nicely said dear poet.

            great comment! how insightful kind friend
            (ashes, yielding the best planting soil
            ask those once, lava fields
            our canvas too, gifts that much more
            when we prevail, over those
            binned efforts and continue to dream
            of that one line or syllable
            which brings it all together, like never before)

            • NafisaSB

              yes, let us begin, or in some cases, take up the unfinished work where we had left off..

              • L. B. Mek

                so true
                still, everything has its time
                glad you could relate, dear poet
                thank you!

              • PrEm Ji

                True to the core!

                • L. B. Mek

                  'from one truth seeking core, to another'
                  glad you could relate, dear cherished friend
                  thanks for checking-in!

                  Very inspiring! If you have the opportunity, please read my Jazz Liberation-somehow we were on the same wave length, composing in music metaphors…
