Avenues of inspiration-
Are myriad it seems
Some come of the dawning
Others in our dreams.
Some come with each heartbreak
Other through our joy..
Some while watching nature
Or a baby with itís toy.
Some come through perusing
Works of bards of old...
And wringing moisture from their  dust
Or heat from hearths grown cold.
Others from the darker side
Of our humanity-
Of rogues, and rebels
Knaves and thieves..
And vagabonds like me.
Perhaps a painted sunset,
Upon a painted sea-
Or wind from off the ice cap
Or a beach like Waikiki...
Or strolling through a graveyard
Itís tombs and leaning spires...
It really doesnít matter
As long as weíre inspired.

Slinger~
By golly, this is a winner !
And such truths found in your words.
I like the direction this takes.
TERRIFIC !

You nailed it!
E X A C T A M U N D O!
Inspiration comes in so many forms
and so many different emotional flavors!
One can write from heartaches to heart victories,
and vomiting and family pets...
it's all in the perception
and the time we take to look at a subject
with an open mind and flowing pen.
I LOVED THIS WRITING!
