What’s the source of creativity?

In the stillness of quiet
Sounds of silence
Gather together
And arrange themselves
To compose this poem,
Words that I didn’t hear
With my physical ear.
From what source
Did they appear
In my mind?
Ancient Greeks said
The silent inner sounds
Of inspirational creativity
Come from goddesses
That they called muses.
The early Christians believed
That inspiration flows
From Christ in you
And taught how
Not to quench
God’s Spirit.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences in non-traditional church, called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia." If you need encouragement, search for: Elephants Encouraging The Room and/or check out my Amazon author page. Thank you!
