What is Inspiration?

Just a few words about Inspiration for writers,.........artists.......composers..........or for that matter, anyone.........

Inspiration


Inspiration is a peculiar thing

Flipping one over like handspring


It bustles about going here and there

Picking out targets out of thin air


From the depths of the dark

It can strike quite a spark


Or shine as beacon of light

From a hill of great height


Sometimes marching so grand

Like a brass regimental band


And sometimes covering its tracks

Slipping silent between the cracks


Where it goes and who it chooses

Often determines who wins or loses


But when it takes hold

Who knows what may unfold


For its power instills dynamic resolve

Which even laziness cannot dissolve


Causing tremors and excitement

And to the mundane, an indictment


It can change things near and far

And can even change who you are


And so do we tarry, and say a prayer

Pining for an inspiration a love affair
