I had a class assignment this week to write my own definition for creativity. Then, to illustrate my definition in a creative way. Here’s what I came up with:
Creativity – Changing one’s viewpoint to see the various sides of an issue or problem, particularly those that others don’t see, in order to discern the solution that likewise eludes them.
when i was young my view was small
i saw right around me, but that was all
my outlook changed as i matured
my worldview molded by what I’ve endured
but still i choose to try to rise above
to try to fly as the Spirit does
to gain a perspective from where I’ve not been
a less twisted view as seen from heaven
a creative perspective from where i ought
or sometimes, even, from where i’m not
How does that compare with your view of creativity? Can you offer a definition that’s unique to you?
Grace and peace,
