The Essence of Creativity

The edge of nothingness
is always near,
moving when you move,
waiting when you wait.
Do you welcome it
with your silence
and your indifference?
Or do you battle it
at every breath
and every thought
and every action?
Fill the silence with words
and music and movement.
Fill the darkness with color
and pattern and texture.
Shape the emptiness.
Face the void;
fill it with beauty
and eloquence
and meaning.
