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 song,
hoping again to burst forth with creation,
as, from whence, comes inspiration.

İKRJ
28 August, 1999

Yes, lovely...and oh so true. They say that inspiration is 10% dedication and 90% perspiration. I believe them.

Excellent writing, sunshine.

What a lovely poem... If this is what you write when you are uninspired, boy, I can't wait until you get really inspired   But my dear friend, inspiration can come from anything and often at the most unexpected times.

I asked For Inspiration
    ~Ruth Grattan

I asked for inspiration
In a quiet whispered prayer
The cool spring breeze it blew so hard
I'm sure God didn't hear

So I asked for inspiration
On paper crisp and white
But the summer sun was shining
My words were lost in its bright light

I asked for inspiration
As I looked up to the sky
But I found it hard to concentrate
When I heard my baby's cry

Then I begged for inspiration
On my knees there by the sea
But my message must have went unheard
For God didn't answer me

I asked for inspiration
As the Sunday church bells rang
But my pleas were simply muted out
By the hymns the choir sang

So I shouted from the mountain top
"Where is inspiration found?"
And His answer came soft to my ears
"My child, simply look around"


Thanks for the inspiration
