Inspiration


What gives inspiration to you and me
Sleepless nights, the stuff of nightmares, misery
Feelings, happiness, hope, not just tragedy
Sometimes I write of trees, flowers, nature’s beauty around
But sometimes it just feels they’ve all burnt to the ground
Inspiration like our lives is both dark and light
We try fight the dark to keep the light in sight
When its dark dream, take time to stand and stare
For inspiration really comes from everywhere
The beautiful intense autumn palette of leaves
The crisp white landscape of frozen iced winter trees
The sight of opening spring buds as things come alive
They really can help lighten, awaken you inside
Maybe a really funny story you have heard
The simple sound of the singing of a bird
Our inner feelings as well as people we meet
It can even be something like funny feet
Or just listening to the words of a song
Inspiration is so very different for everyone
So try and open your mind, let things in
And see what life’s inspiration may bring

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
