The Art of Creation

The Art of Creation (Randyjw; August 30, 2017)

 

The author raises his writing hand

flexgel poised, as if in thought

“What comes next,” he mutters;

“And is it parenthetical to the plot?”

 

The artist reviews the spaces

of the blank canvas he fills at-will

pondering with deep concentration

the emotional voids he’ll attempt to fill

 

The old scribe just recopies the story

he’s written many times before

His smile at the formulaic equation

has him beaming when he reads it once more
