“Imagination will often carry us to worlds that never were, but without it we go nowhere.”
― Carl Sagan

Emotion swirls around in circles
As the ink blotches the page, in spots
Dotting every single sentence,
But that isn't the end of the story
Oh no! This is just the beginning
Of a fruitful and successful spring.
Like junipers and tiger lilies I jump
Off from the ground and into a book
Each chapter a novelty, a blessing
Because passion drives me
To move mountains with simple words –
Although there is complexity in what I say,
Something that is undefined and refines
The tongue with whispers and images –
A painting that changes in hue every second,
Every moment a renewed portrait,
A landscape of what is in the mind's eye.
Words are a living creature, a new breed
Of personality that releases pheromones
Smelling of cinnamon and fresh coffee –
Something pleasurable and stimulating
To the brain-work that conjures magic.
I'm a magician insane enough to believe
That there is more to just speaking plainly
Because behind every word is a secret,
And I run in pursuit to find those out.
Ink on the paper is a prescription, a remedy
To the maladies that boil inside,
As if it were really a plague to be so blessed.
This world has more to offer than simple words
Because words have meaning, hopeful grace
That sweeps up a person in a world
Unlike any they have seen before
And whisks them away to a Neverland
Of make believe and a wishful blend
Of pixie dust that can make ink soar
Right off from the page, and into stars
Whose glimmering constellations are heroes
Who've provided guidance and compassion
To the writer that is inside of me.
See, everything has a purpose on this earth,
And I'm here to unlock those purposes
To read between the lines of black and white
And unravel the mysteries that are hidden
In every single stanza and every rhyme.
Reading the details like a homemade recipe
So that I can mix a perfect blend of spices
Herbs and tasteful reckonings in the bowl
Stirring it well and serving it on a platter.
There is something resonating within
A light that shines through the seams
Ready to burst, a supernova of creativity
Because of the surrounding secrets around me.
