One weekend, after a hearty jog, I sat down on a bench and began reflecting on the creative process. I began remembering the countless times that I had got excited about an idea, jumped into it quickly and then realised that I had somehow rushed the process and missed some steps. Out of the blue the image of a teabag came to me and I started making all sorts of associations around letting ideas have their brewing time and, of course, wrote a poem!
I really enjoy being a spontaneous and instinctive person so most of the time my urges pay off and yet I do a acknowledge that it’s good to let things brew from time to time.
Go dunk your teabag in the cup
Allow it to infuse
The process isn’t based on luck
Ideas need time to brew
Sit back and watch the shades turn deep
Give space for incubation
Your precious Rosie Lee must steep
Have faith in your creation!
Full trust, for it will not escape
The ritual needs your patience
As you relax, it will take shape
A win-win situation
and when you set your cuppa free
Let go of who’ll embrace it
We’re not the whole world’s cup of tea
Approval – do not chase it
We have to let our projects brew
Then they will surely nourish
There is no need to fret or stew
What’s meant to be will flourish!
