Unabridged Encyclopedia Personica

Just when you think you’d thought it all,

sold the masses your unabridged Encyclopedia Personica

with juxtaposed jackets dusted by your

Je ne sais quoi style;

ran out of propane for the back burner of your brain

to stew mind over matter;

succumbed to an epiphany embargo,

synaptic strings severed that once slingshot eurekas

over the great wall of your collective consciousness;

crumpled every last legal pad of paper with half-completed crap

and laid to waste acres of ancient forest to catapult into the trash;

yes, just when you blinked and broke your muse’s momentum

by misstepping a rhyme, slurring a syllable or maligning a metaphor,

you still have yet to play all of your marbles, eat every nuanced flavor of Jelly Belly bean

or trip your twisted tongue and autopilot poetry into all the world’s countries.

    Yes, it’s amazing how something can come from nothing or a happy accident starts the wheels griding again. There is no end to art

    • Thank you for sharing your wise words, Verity! While we may never unlock all of the secrets within our skull or unearth every mystery outside ourselves, there will always be our unique moment-by-moment perception of the world. Creative circumstances are abound if we are patient and comfortable with the silence inside ourselves. My muse may be Nature, but Mother Earth was born by a universe of nothing more than static. I hope you have a wonderful day, my friend!

    I’ve never traveled outside of the United States, but so far there are over 70 countries reading my blog in just two months. This blows my mind. Always a pleasure to bring my corner of the planet to your computer screen day in and day out. Thank you to all of the 549 people following my blog! Your inspiration fuels the world 100 times more efficiently than oil. Keep flinging your ideas over the walls, my friends 🙂
