Inspiration, all around, breathing, waiting,
to be a playful buddy if we notice,
a grace note for our creative lives

Imagination feeds on Inspiration
bumping one idea against unlikely friends
finding faces in a rock,
hearing crimson, tasting grief,
inhaling faint aromas of serenity

Drink from nurturing soil
as Inspiration rains upon your soul
watch with wonder what begins to quicken
play with it backwards,
stretch it out of focus
and wait to be amazed as she blooms

“Combinatory play seems to be the essential feature in productive thought.” Albert Einstein
