The First StepThe apprehension that a writer always feels,
Upon inscribing their first page,
Is much like that of any actor’s great unease,
Before they greet the golden spotlights of the stage.
The tension that goes through a racer’s mind,
As they prepare to push the needle past the gauge,
Or the doubt that enters minds,
Of all great people as they prepare to wage,
A war against the butterflies within their stomachs,
That form the all-restraining bars of inspiration’s cage.
The first small step, the first great leap,
For whatever it is that you may well pursue,
Shall always be the longest and the hardest,
But in the end you'll find the purpose of your quest was true.
So go out and push the limits of the world around you,
And if you break it, build the world anew.
Follow your heart, express yourself, explore the unexplored,
And never ever stop doing what you do.
Of Snake Charmers and TreesThere are mathematicians
that calculate the gravitational
pull that tethers us to one another,
teasing sense out of the fabric
of Time and Space like
wizened snake charmers.
I thought them so horribly
unromantic, searching for
logic amidst wildflowers--
reasoning being reason enough
to put one foot in front
of the other each day.
True beauty lay printed
on petals and pages,
where I delved for pearls;
the patterns in the pathos
intriguing me into each
rising of the sun.
I do not remember when
it occurred to me that
without fractals there would
be no trees, nor without love
would people have any reason
to calculate the distances that
separate them from their muses.
