Inspiration

From whence comes inspiration,
that shifting, wisp-o’-the-will soft sensation
of thought and context and words that stream,
as effervescent and gone, whiff, like a soft dream.

Sneaky little concepts, spiraling out of control
just as quickly as it comes, grab a pen, it goes
and in its absence, a sudden, inexplicable pain,
wondering if that design will even come again.

Oh, mourn the loss of the utterance now gone,
but pick up the pen and murmur the right song,
hoping again to burst forth with creation,
as, from whence, comes inspiration.

The perfect explanation of what has been happening to me lately!!! You did good, girl! It's as if the touch of my fingers on a pen causes my mind to go completely blank. Grrrr! It's drivin' me crazy!
Glad you aren't having that problem!

This is great! Can't let it slip away yet. I find myself creating poetry at one in the morning and I have to get up and write it down or I'll forget it! Definitely agree on the 'sneaky little concepts' part!
