Creation's Initial Cry

A window
Paper and pen

Exhausted eyes open
Light passes through
Revealing imagination's kingdom
Where innocence of vision
Constructs reality's alternate states

Instinct rejoices
Inviting fearless abandon
Abolition of doubt
Becomes trust's reward

A sudden breeze
Makes restless the paper
Arresting pen's attention
Beckoning ideas to flow

Eyes gather more light
Urging ink's furrowed lines and space
Across waiting landscape
Tilled grounding embraces syllabic seeds
Eager to grow
Anticipating harvest to nourish other imaginings
Where the most arid of minds will moisten
Provide conception and development
Perpetuate linguistic fertility

Only destiny knows of full term
As gestation differs from mode to mode
But writers know birth's rewarding moment
Creation's initial cry
One's first draft

that first draft - often rough and ready
raw and honest - how often do we leave well enough
alone? perhaps not often enough and yet, polish
appeals, shines our efforts;
as always, Odin, worth a great deal

Another enchanting write covering your subject completely, bravo.

"Creation's Initial Cry"
I am pretty certain we know each other
voices like this are everlasting
with their deep imprints
...and beautiful perfumes
