Updated on February 24, 2011

it comes to me when i am alone.

the music must be soft

the room usually dim.

mostly its at night.

i wait patiently, calling out for it in my mind

when it finally comes

it always feels the same

just as calming

just as energising

as a soft wind

sweeping through the grass

along the shore.

its comforting and fulfilling.

it teaches me, and caresses me

it fills the void and whispers to me

alerts me

of deep original thoughts i have not yet discovered

were within me.


is a fragile thing

when it comes

you have to grab hold of it

be gentile with it

and find a way to sustain it.

but most importantly

bask in the warmth of it

let it take over

as you write quicker, type faster, paint harder, sculpt free er

inspiration is my lover

inspiration is my drug

inspiration is the thing that i hold onto most dear

its like nothing Ive ever felt before

and when it comes

i feel renewed

reborn into the thing that i am creating

if you've never had the chance

to taste inspiration

your missing out.

      Very nicely said Pink. Inspiration can be fleeting, but when it comes along it's always a welcome feeling. :) Thumbs up! :)
