Kaleidoscopic Inspiration


In want of inspiration for my work
I picked up the kaleidoscope by my desk;
the sunny day called me
to view its dancing colors through its lens

The floating jewels
created ever-changing patterns
but then got stuck –
stagnant, without progress

I inspected my kaleidoscope
from an outside perspective;
sure enough the jewels were clumped together
blocking the flow of movement toward new patterns

I shook it up a bit until
a bubble of possibility formed
nudging the lovely colored jewels
to dance again and make their fluid patterns
that inspired my work anew
