May you be Creative!

My grateful heart
receives abundant
creativity,
It springs
from the Well
of Living waters.
For the abundance
to be available
we must open
 our heart 
to kindnesses 
awaiting to be bestowed. 
Of creativity 
I can only say 
it is a wellspring 
of its own 
refreshing participants 
both giver and receiver.
It's springs
be flooding,
I wish upon you
the flow 
from the depths
of your heart.
From the Well
you may drink
but be sure
to pass it on
or stagnant
it will become.
Of Living waters
we know so little
yet with humble hearts
we receive
and in so doing
we are restored.

“Joy does not simply happen to us. We have to choose joy and keep choosing it every day.”

Henri Nouwen

Creativity is like joy, it’s infectious. For inspiration to come we need to choose our “art” every day, welcoming that flow into us and giving it back to ensure it keeps on flowing. “Art” requires nurturing. Henri says that joy is more than a feeling, it is a choice. I believe that it is not just joy that we need to choose every day but for those of us who are creative, be it art, writing, music, dance etc. we need to exercise choice as well. Nurture the flow of creativity.

Take care, life is a gift – be inspired and let it flow.

  2. Beautifully worded and adorned with such vivid colors and works of art. I loved that brilliant pink park bench in the middle of all of those pink flowers! Is that on your property? I can just see you deciding that the bench needed some more color and having your way with a paintbrush and paint to make it beautiful.

    • Thank you 😁 the bench is beautiful but it isn’t mine unfortunately it is in a little town just outside New Castle upon Tyne but I forget the name. You have just given me a wonderful idea for the old bench I inherited from my mother πŸ‘πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰
