Sometimes when I am in ‘creative thinking’ mode, it is like being in a mesmerized state of mind, where all the dots seem to connect perfectly. It’s like being lost in my imagination and the rhythm feels just right – hard to explain really. I distinctively remember creating the poem below, even though, in that moment, I had shut off from the world. I was in that hypnotic happy state – it was pure escapism for me at the time as I was really unhappy in my job. This is another poem from the year 1996, which I have now categorised as, ‘Out of my head and into the archives’. In this fast world, may your day be filled with truth, love and serenity. Clarabelle
Happiness I Bring
Faster and faster, the world goes by,
Moving unnoticed, until you stop and think, why?
I look up to the clouds, shades of dull white,
Overlapping with each other, in slow motion, at height.
Afar in the distance, images are faint,
A mixture of shapes, and colours I paint.
Reflections on windows, the opposite way round,
Birds swifting by, some silently sound.
Reality sometimes, feels such a beautiful thing,
It this moment now, happiness I bring.
