Featured Poem: Anatta: The Key to Creativity

By Patricia Daly-Lipe
Washington, D.C .Branch


Sound and light,

Flashes from the dark

Penetrating the woods and streams within my shell

As I lose the wall, my body, and succumb to the rays of light

And the rhythm of chords, shaking, quickening my nerves

To lose oneself – myself –

To feel, to become,

To emerge, to grow and blend,

To breathe and be,

Without form, without parameters

    Patricia: This so conveys the energizing effect of letting yourself go in creating. I’m grinning here at my laptop, gray skies sailing past, osprey diving for breakfast, and the swirling memories of my recent hike around Ullapool, Scotland’s fishing harbor. Life is great. Thanks for sharing.
