Creative Writing -- a Time Well Wasted: A Rhyme to Entertain

Val enjoys writing his own style of what resembles poetry, just hoping to catch someone's heart on the same page.


Start writing, no matter what. The water does not flow until the faucet is turned on.

-- Louis L'Amour

We have an incessant inner chatter

minds often shifting into an overdrive

so to dump some of that mental clutter

it's good to make a creative writing dive.

Brainstorming through all that stuff

ideas come some crazy, some good

not easy to separate wheat from chaff

but then it all depends on creative mood.

It's something like giving mental birth

and not exactly without any labor pains

then finally we get to see our efforts worth

while feeling a great relief all over our brains.

Now talking about that nagging need to share

once that an idea looks worth presenting

but we need it to be shown out there

even if it's only a crazy venting.

Without sharing creation makes no sense

as our creative muse needs that support

though how it will be taken is a suspense

yet we've got to go through it -- not abort.

And we admire what we have created

knowing by others' tastes it will be tested

just the same, look how we're feeling elated

for all time spent just couldn't be better wasted.
