An inspiration


Can arrive


Quite unexpectedly


At any moment


Of the day or night



While you are catnapping


Driving in your car


Strolling through the park


Or staring into space



You should never


Attempt to hinder it


Or quell its impassioned desire


To be released


And to express itself fully



Even though


At first glance


Its initial attempts


May seem like


A complete waste of time


Utter folly


Or even sheer madness



With deft patience


And understanding


You may often


Be quite surprised


At inspirationís final form



Many a masterpiece


Both artistic and written


Has resulted from


Quite an odd assortment


Of meager




And unbelievable beginnings

straight to the heart of the matter... I had an odd inspiration this morning when a glowing moon still hung in the daylit sky. I followed the thoughts blindly for a time and arrived at the most amazing place. I love the creative life! great expression of it here.

I'm always writing things down as they occur to me - even if they make no sense. Quite often my writings are borne of reading old scribblings and making sense of them. Excellent write

This is so true. You never know where something is going to lead, if you take an idea an just follow through on it. This can apply to any creative effort, not just art.
