On Inspiration...

My inspiration flows

In golden droplets from clouds of love;

Lessons learned in early days from gentle hands

And firm beliefs.

It flows like a river's lullaby

From generous family and friends whose outstretched hands

Expect only mutual affection

and no reward.

My inspiration grows

With pitter-patters of tiny paws,

dog-hair coated clothing, and endless kisses

from loving little pink tongues.

It grows abundantly

From the depths of dim-lit nights--

Dreamily warmed by a dying fire;

Secrets and smiles entwined in a glowing embrace.

My inspiration lifts

the powerful yet delicate wings of a soul

whose oxygen is music and sunset and light.

It is around and not of myself;

breathing color and wind into black and white sails.

I'm submersing myself in my current project. Feel free to message me or stop by just to say hello. There will be a few poems posted here and there I'm sure, as there are always a few of those bouncing back and forth between my ears. Mostly, however, I'll be working on my "project" and will only be by every now and then. Take care and see you all soon!
