Poems On Creativity

Creativity comes in a variety of forms. Many people think of writing and artwork as the main ways to show creativity, but there are many others. Creating something is a powerful form of self-expression, and it can impact other people. The inspiration to create can be found anywhere. It can be found in the beauty of nature, the relationships that surround us, or the hurt that is within us. When we allow the creative side of our brain to take over, we never know the beauty that will come from it.

    Analysis of Form and Technique

    If I could take a brush and paint the mountains and the moors,

    I'd take the finest needle and the darkest thread of green
    And sew a line of bracken along the landscape. In-between
