Great Minds: Write about someone you admire and you thought to have had a beautiful mind.

To create a world that is more real to me than my own at times.
To provide a place of solace and adventure both, letting me escape as I please.
To introduce me to characters I grow to know and care for,
I laugh when they laugh, cry when they cry, hurt when they hurt.
There are many great minds in this world,
too many to count perhaps.
But this mind, this author,
I wonder if they’ll ever know,
just how much their words have impacted my life.
A truly great mind indeed.

Author Note: I don’t even know if this counts as creative writing! There are so many great minds, so many people who inspire me, but for this piece I wanted to pay tribute to a writer. J. K. Rowling has created a world that I wish I was part of, well, let’s be honest, in my mind I am a part of it! So I don’t care if this isn’t “creative writing”, or even good writing, it is just my way of saying how much I appreciate what she has given me.
