by Laura Senff


Inspiration approaches in many forms

A ray of sunshine or a sliver of moonlight
Watching campfire flames ignite
The wind blowing in the trees or waves hitting the shore
Or even watching winged beasts soar

Inspiration in sundry situations transforms

Maybe it is a speech on television
Witnessing your lover’s indecision
A sweet song in perfect harmony
Or a strangers courtesy

Writing requires inspiration

Words without inspiration are lacking
Writing is not as simple as hacking
A work of art in discord
Instantly to be abhorred

Otherwise, literature is naught but simple recitation
