A Short Poem about Creativity to Invite New Energy

This isn’t just a poem about creativity; it’s a poem *for* creativity. The intention here is to welcome something new into your life, into your work, into your relationships. So you can create with delight and ease, and without having to force it.

“In the end, she became more than what she expected. She became the journey, and like all journeys, she did not end, she just simply changed directions and kept going.” — R.M. Drake

I wrote this poem about creativity because I decided to stop forcing and start receiving. I wanted to stop forcing my creativity into the world. I wanted to stop rushing all the time.

So I chose the present moment, as fully and openly as I could, just as it is. Just because I wanted to feel alive again. I wanted to feel inspiration sweep through me; I was sick of striving, and I wanted to fly instead.

This is the spirit of creativity: opening, allowing, experiencing without fighting for anything.

I wanted to remember how abundant I am because I am alive, so I wrote this poem about creativity. Creativity, as I know it, puts me in the perfect position to express how lovely it is to be alive. And there’s no greater feeling than to be in love with life.

Psst... Never forget how creative you are... just by being here. Get this handwritten poetry print to inspire the work you're here to do. The world needs you.

A Poem about Creativity

Orange Energy

 

All I want to do is delight—

Throw the mask off,

Not care and not worry,

Not explain what I mean nor

Define what I do.

Just be whatever I feel like being.

Just relish in the energy of this moment.

I want to be so alive that

I feel like the moon,

Throwing tides just for fun,

Creating because it’s what I’m

Here to do.

I want to love the color orange,

Just because it craves delight too.

I want to cry because

I’m so in love with the miracle of

Being alive.

I don’t want to feel like I’m

Striving.

I want to try and feel like I’m

Flying.

 

I want to write the poetry,

Read the poetry, and

Breathe the poetry.

I want my life to be a

Beautiful,

Messy mosaic that even I

Can’t help but fall in love with.

 

Create! Create!

I feel the winds of fury

Blowing through me.

Even my bones are smiling.

I hear my veins pulsing with

Desire, like branches

Dancing in the breezes.

Wildflowers are waving and

The ocean blossoms with a new idea.

Crazy and beautiful is

How I want my life to feel.

 

Let it be. Let it be.

I write to be free.

I read to tap in.

I absorb the poetry.

And so it shall be.

And now I am this energy.

. . .

Tell me:

Which part of this poem is your favorite?

Tell me in the comments. I read every single one, and I’d love to know!

Create. Create. It’s what you’re here to do.

With love,

Jen

    I’m a funeral celebrant and was looking for a poem for a gentlemen who was very creative and loved energy and nature. This is perfect! Would it be ok to share it at his funeral.
    You have such a gift. Thank you

    Hi Jen,

    Such beautiful words, I think it so aptly describes the sentiment of a friend of mine who has asked me to facilitate a creative expression night for her birthday. I hope you do not mind me reading this aloud to capture her feelings?
