On Getting Out of the Way

How do YOU get out of the way and let inspiration happen?


I made a desk,
Or rather
A desk made me.

While toying
Wrestling ideas
Wrangling plots
Swirling the story
Letting it
New patterns
And possibilities
The mundane
Emptied me out
Step by step
I trickled aside
And the story
Fell in to place.

I made a desk
Or rather
A desk made me~ Olivia J. Herrell
