Poet’s speak of ‘la ligne donnee’ – the given line. This is the line of a poem given to them by the Muse, by Spirit. It comes into their mind from somewhere apparently outside themselves, or perhaps from their subconscious. Once they have this, they can begin their poem. It is the spark, the trigger, the catalyst for their creative process. It is Awen. Whether we are poets or not, whatever our creative field, without Awen, it is hard, if not impossible, to begin. But once it is given to us, it is like being fertilised. Suddenly the world, our work, is pregnant with possibilities.
