impatience

is the lightning-strike

urge to purge

yourself of patience

when others see things

differently.

it pierces

the peace

like the unrelenting

anxious squeal

of a white-hot steaming

tea kettle.

imperious

pressurized

percolating

petulant,

demands your

perfect compliance,

yet

shatters to shards

‘neath the crush

of questioning

its teetering

tribal

duty-bound

logic,

& myriad

false

assumptions

Left

hypothesis on Living a Creative Life

the Power to live

a creative life

lies in the ability to

actively make choices.

Choices centered

in a willingness

to be sure about nothing

in a willingness

to embrace a state of non-thinking silence

– just long enough

for inspiration to surge

& flow

spontaneously

into a conscious state

of gentle awareness

cultivated

by an attitude

of non-clinging curiosity

evolving heuristically

into a soundly reasoned theory

evaluated

for validity

& reliability

only by means of positive

internal

emotional response
