Creative writing is a magical method of communication which allows one to express the simplest thoughts with a divine eloquence
About 1979 I wrote my first creative piece. It was a simple piece of work for a class assignment. That piece was published in a book for our class.
It is dark
You can hear the dripping of the water
And the long stalactites hanging
From a red ceiling.
The light reflects
And dances on the cool, wet surfaces of the roof
And looks like glitter.
At that time in my life, I did not know that creative writing would become a strength and an outlet for my inner thoughts. Since that time, I have written over 200 pieces. Some are simple poems and some are lyrical. Other works are descriptive stories written in a poetic structure.
Creative writing - whether it is song, poetry, prose, short or long story - is an outlet for the inner being, a voice that speaks out in parable and riddle, yet it can also be a powerful method of communicating to the world around you. Creative writing can also be a therapy, relieving stress and allowing the mind to focus.
Here are some original pieces that I have written. These pieces should provoke thought as they are intended to urge the reader to think.
