  1. Go walk in nature and

  2. There in the wholeness of the high trees

  3. And the whispering arches of the clouds,

  4. Allow yourself to be silent,

  5. Alone with your ideas,

  6. Allow your discomforts to disown you,

  7. Puzzle pieces that seem disparate

  8. Will fit together on the page, on the canvas,

  9. Or in your smile,

  10. Be still, be open,

  11. The glow of creativity

  12. Is here with you.
