The magical state of flow

This poem is about flow, that magical state you enter when doing something you love:

Creativity | Day 108

The other day I was ricocheting slowly
off the blue walls of this room,
moving as if underwater from typewriter to piano,
from bookshelf to an envelope lying on the floor,
when I found myself in the L section of the dictionary
where my eyes fell upon the word lanyard.

-Billy Collins
