    Save for the cat, my poems have been inspired by pretty much everything you've listed: / In all seriousness, though, this is another example of your ability to come up with a seemingly simple idea, and show that it's not simple at all. It looks innocuous, because of the length, but says so much.10. (Report)Reply

    And sometimes they do, but where they really come from is the question I suppose. Nice thought to ponder. (Report)Reply

    I like the compact form of this because it just proves that we don't always need a lot of 'words' to make a point. (Report)Reply
