CREATIVITY'S SPHERE
Sometimes, loneliness throws a curve ball,
In an inning, to send a player running,
Running for the catch;
But there is a stumble, and a very near miss,
Excitement applauds the relish of such,
A lovely stroke;
Ending in solitude, for that's where the striker,
Who really is a griot, of sorts, wanted to take
The story line;
Out of the field of grassy abandonment, and,
Into an undefined space, of fresh new dreams,
called creativity's sphere.

  1. Ah, when loneliness eventually goes full circle through solitude and then into creativity's sphere, it is a wonderful thing.

  3. interesting...it can feel so lonely up there at the plate, especially if you are in a slump...so when the ball is thrown just right and you send the ball out into a hit, what a relief it is...

  7. Very interesting, i have been there out on a cricket pitch, watching wickets tumble, that is quite a lonely place. A great capture.
