Downtime


Every creative soul
experiences downtime
It's that lull,
the ebb of the flow
When the hot flames of creativity
starts to burn real low
Now this can frustrate a novice,
someone who hasn't lived in this empty state
They're much too impatient,
they haven't yet learned that they need to wait
Downtime is such a necessary part
of the creative process
It gets the epiphanies recharged
To generate more, you have to be given less
Well, here comes my downtime
That peaceful lull,
the calming ebb of the flow
Soon it'll be time to stoke fresh coals of creativity
when the dying embers begin to lose their glow
