Creativity Is Surprised

Never a man or woman set out on a mission
Determined to be declared creative
Uttering the demand will not command
Creativity to appear as a butler ready
The land of the unfamiliar welcomes all
Like the land of the survival of the fittest
Crafted, planned, itemized, willing thoughts
Lie on the mattress of boredom and lethargy
Energy, fanfare, trumpet lie listless, silent
The planned shows itself, a bad photocopy
Creativity arrives unanticipated
Creativity arrives when the planned errs
There are those bending brains to conform
Twisting gray cells to convince humanity
Creativity surprises all, especially itself
After frustration has slapped itself silly
Materializing at inopportune time
Uncertain what it will do next
Like Jim Carey, Eddie Murphy
Unscripted, unplanned, improv
Just leave the door wide open
Accept creativity unconditionally
When it arrives, don’t hoot and holler
Drink its unquenchable juices greedily
It arrives at its own good-and-ready time

--My dream has loved paper so much for so long because it gave influence to the parched voice of a fashionista poet. Finding this outlet, that voice is now replete with expressive sound.
