the first thing I do
is turn on the thin
chrome desk lamp.
Light floods the glass top
of a lean, modern desk.
Jars and mugs
filled with all manner
of colored pens and sharpened pencils
crown the top of the desk.
Above the desk,
a large picture window
brings in orange glows of sunrise.
This is a place for writing,
There is something so uplifting
about my own writing space.
carved out especially for words,
is an incubator

Love the concept of an “incubator for creativity”. What a lovely description of your creative place.
Your words paint such a picture of this treasured space, and I love that you added a picture for us. What soft and beautiful light! Enjoy it!
Elizabeth Ellington wrote a post recently about the physicality of writing and inspiration. I’m starting to this there is more to this than I previously thought. In fact, your line “a large picture window
brings in orange glows of sunrise” makes me think about the window that writing provides on the world, and writers need a space and a window. Beautiful poem!
I love the idea of your “incubator for creativity.” Enjoy your space!
