A longing to create

DSC05359Searching for my inner muse

Trying to conjure up a ruse

To trick my errant  mind to create

A thing of beauty that can satiate

A burning desire within me

To leave my mark for posterity

Create an object of timeless appeal

Something that lovingly I could seal

Waiting for inspiration to strike me

Which never does appear likely

Since the humdrum of daily existence

Offers creativity formidable resistance

Instead I play with words in vain

To express here my angst and pain

Hoping that this brush with poetry

Would spur me to greater creativity

Maybe my muse shall come to me

Hidden in these verses’ tapestry!

P.S. The photograph above is from an exhibition named “Art of the Brick”, an exhibit of creations using LEGO bricks by artist Nathan Sawaya, currently on display at the Franklin Institute, Philadelphia.
