‘Just Do It’
screamed the billboard
it hit me
like a bolt from the blue.
I had been so busy learning
The world of action had no clue.
neural pathways in the brain
knock on mind and soul
illuminated by ideas
the only language I understand.
convert thought to action
before it slips like quicksand.
pick up the ladle, watch the tastebuds
bloom into warmth of love
pick up the pen, map the thought
pick up a palette to colour life
see what you can do, good or bad
just act, and end the mental strife
creativity is a journey sublime
from concept to execution time.
looking for inspirational sparks
to ignite the process, just one more time.
we absorb, we churn, we respond
to give body to thought, we act or mime.
life is a reflection
the mirror changes,
so does the image
as objects pass through Time
on an unknown,
