At Alive we want to give everyone a platform to create.
Creativity is a process that benefits yourself and others. We want our followers to be involved in a community that allows them to express themselves and share ideas. Deeply engaging with your own thoughts and constructing a piece of writing, a song or an artwork is extremely beneficial to personal growth. Others also benefit from this work, as they connect with the art you produce they can expand their own perspective and gain insight from looking into your world.
A friend of Alive has written a poem to describe a morning where he felt a deep appreciation for life. This was written by Roger Ly. He is an incredibly diverse individual who involves himself in every creative and cultural pursuit he can find. He is constantly on the go and frequently produces new music, art, drama and comedy work. His passion for the arts shines through in everything he does.
Its important to appreciate the little things in life and Roger captures this notion so perfectly.
Here is his poem..
The steam swirling from my coffee, softly flares in-between the rays of the morning sun.
Little vapours waft and tickles my nose, I drink, gulp, the warmth kisses my chest.
It is a simple picturesque morning scene-the grass is green with friendly weeds, fat bumble bees on yellow daisies and the imperfect banana trees swaying in the gentle morning breeze.
Breathe…….. My arm reach above my head and my back stretch.
A rush flutters through the top of my back, as the muscles I should be kind to, relax.
I am alive.
This moment is enough to feel my time, to fill my time, to feel life.
There is no mansion, no grand backyard.
But, there is a home with songs and love.
So I start this day with joy and with a little burnt tongue.
How good was that.
If you're keen to share some art that makes you feel ALIVE, let us know and we can give you the platform to do so.
We want to here what makes you feel healthy, fulfilled and grateful!
