The first step is to banish fear
To its accustomed place on
The third shelf where
It can transform into a
Reasonable caution that
Whispers instead of shouts.
The second is to wield the bright
Pen, paint in words, creating
Sensation with each syllable, set the
Art within free from the cage
Fear placed it in,
And follow as it flies.
Then the ideas will dance upon
The page and leave wondrous tracks,
Glittering there to catch the wandering
Mind and show it all the wild places
Within its own heart, the tender
Places only words can reach.
