The Thrill of Creating

00  Michelangeo's God Creating Adam

In the silence of morning before dawn
feeling the energy of the stream
of creating
as we continue to let beauty
have its way with us
flowing out to the world in such joyful ways
catching that elusive beauty
that flashes into view
along the edges of vision
not looking directly at it
but letting it slip by in the dream
or in the streaming silence
between waking and sleeping
or in the enchantment of music
flowing and dancing
in and out of awareness
like the face and form and color
appearing on a canvas
or on the screen in digital play
in the words that seem to arise
out of the whiteness
and purity of the page
or out of the dark skies of the mystic night
whispering to the open heart
kissing the open hand
that holds the brush or the pen
the dear ones are there
unseen and outside of time
waiting for us to be touched
by the one caressing and kissing
our eyes
coming to life in our soul
