What Is, So Is

Entry Eleven – 2023 Creativity Project

Features Added – © Jo Ann J. A. Jordan

Some days we find difficult to incorporate into the woven fabric that expands to welcome love and life. The oceans of time and space try our pace, to haste, with little or no grace. Still, we face it all with courage borrowed from other days, whether past or future only living will divulge.

The Best Time to Start

Entry Ten – 2023 Creativity Project

You know when you go to place an order on Amazon, and you realize you want THE ITEM placed in your presence immediately, only yesterday. This sort of occurrence happens to, I suppose, everyone at one time or another.

Happening is evermore infinite, occurring in place and time – past, present, and future.

There is, somewhere, something, an intangibility to our reality, which is almost always on the edge of what we grasp. Maybe poets are extraordinarily aware that reaching the ethereal is an opportune possibility. Of Creativity, perhaps Poetry sits on a plane, sphere, somewhat of its own making. The visions conjured in a way incomprehensible and unique but calling out to be written. A wordly wizardry juggled like bubbles blown by a unicorn.

Nothing is impossible because everything is variable. Artistry caught on a cellphone like a castle composed of air articulated by An Agent of Spiralling Chaos captured on a string not quite relative in theory.

Like this scrap from long ago:

Somewhere on the edge of tomorrow,
Somewhere  on the verge of yesterday,
Somewhere in the past, we don’t remember,
Somewhere not of Earth, far away.

Somewhere there are songs we were singing,
Somewhere there are rhymes that we made,
Somewhere on the edge of tomorrow,
Somewhere on the verge of yesterday.

The verses are like a found artifact that never entirely becomes but is nonetheless something recognizable.

Ah, what teenage girls dream in quickly vanishing moments. Something of beauty not to be caught in amber. Yet, now existent in the material, making meaning to sentient beings doing what we glean as living.

PROMPT: Use some found article in your environment as a catalyst for creation. You are a creature able to manifest greatness.

Gratitude:

1. Possibility
2. Opportunity
3. Creativity
4. Agency
5. Imagination

My fondest thanks for your presence here today. May something have enlightening potential for you. If it suits your fancy comment, follow, like, and share with others who you believe might realize some compatibility with the compositions and complications here.

May living enrich your being infinitely. Blessed be in each exploration, momentarily.

Always & Ever,
Jo Ann

Randomness

Entry Nine – 2023 Creativity Project

Creativity is the motor, imagination the spark, and motivation the drive; randomness is sometimes the result.

Each poem today comprises conjoined tanka, five lines with syllables, 5-7-5-7-5. They are intended to be a bit jarring.

Continue, In Doubt

Entry Eight – 2023 Creativity Project

I am uncertain that this Creativity Project will survive. I am having difficulty convincing myself to do it already, and the year is young.

Part of this is that I am having problems keeping myself engaged in reality. I have a lot on my mind that I feel disinclined to share. 

I am usually transparent in my Creativity Projects, but this is becoming near impossible.

I put a lot of pressure on myself when I commit to these. The fact that I feel I am creating in a vacuum does not help me. No one is commenting, few likes occur, and my stats show that there a so few visitors it is almost depressing.

I do not have a journal entry today. I went for a long walk outside this evening; I tried to straighten myself out. I had no success.

I have taken no photographs today and done no art. So much of my content is missing. I am writing at the last possible moment because I still feel a commitment.

I am grateful:

1. My best friend called today.
2. My night vision is still incredibly intact.
3. I had a baked potato.

Prompt: Permit yourself to be completely real and create from there.

Thanks for visiting. Take care. God Bless.

Always & Ever,
Jo Ann

The Empty Page, Legacy

Entry Seven – 2023 Creativity Project

Today, I came with nothing, no content, no plan, and without words. I decided to write from there. At that moment, something magical happened. The page reached out and I grabbed hold. Now, history unspools from the past, my writing; the present, your reading; the future, something seeded in you, me. Forever is changed, legacy, destiny.
