Creativity is seeing beyond
the patterned ways and
the language of the ordinary,
to the possibilities that dare
to be alive in the doing and
the thinking and the moving
of the dull to the danger of
the revolution new.

The new is always lurking
in the fields of the old,
ready to come out playful,
ready to combine uniquely
with some unexpected dreams,
and challenge the dogma
stored up in the sameness
of the heavens above
and the earth below.
