The call of creation
Echoes in my mind,
Oscillates in my ears,
Reverberates in my soul.
This call cannot go unanswered;
It is the call of wild and reckless abandon,
The puissant grace of the cheetah
And the wind rustling the reeds.
Every word and image
Cast upon the page
and melded with my very heart,
Pumping lifeblood and illuminating
Each and every star above,
Pouring into every single
Excruciatingly luxurious ink stroke.
The overwhelming grace
That You have given me
Is clarity beyond simple hope,
And a new day
