Creating a Poem From Nothing

Empty, insensate space.
Inside my mind, the
Dormant mental matter lies,
Waiting to be awakened.

And then…

A pin-point poem appears
And all consciousness coalesces around
A single idea.

A bright, blinding light –
As omnipotent inspiration
Jump-starts the silence with
A big bang of imagination,
Throwing free-flowing thoughts outwards
In a chaotic outburst of characters
As the emptiness explodes into
A universe of words.
