Revenge of the muse

a poem
a day.
what was I thinking
announcing it
to the
world?
did
enthusiasm or
foolhardiness cadge
control of my mouth?
perhaps this is
my muse
declaring “Payment due.”
for all those
inspirations offered
and
declined.

Daily Poem Project 2018 – day 2

What does poetry have to do with business and career coaching? Acts of creativity spark non-linear thinking. They help us color outside the confines of how our insecurities or unconscious social and cultural conditioning tell us we “should” be doing things. My acts of revolutionary and evolutionary creativity are almost always poems. But they could be doodles, freeform crochet, cooking without a recipe, improvisational dance or music or anything that engages your feelings, senses and intuition. What are yours?
