30/30 Day 15-Overboard

Prompt: Overboard

It starts as a tingle in the fingertips

then in a flash, excitement flares up my limbs

my mind explodes and expands

into plots, characters, and stories

branching into a map, and my hand can’t move fast enough

to type, to paint, to sketch, to write

to capture my muses as the splinter and fly apart

into blooms of fireworks flickering and flashing before my eyes

and like a child, I sit there in wonder

as the rush of creativity hits me again and again, waves

knocking me around and I flail around

trying to gather every piece of inspiration that floats near

before I drown as my inner artist goes overboard
