Inspiration?

I have been saving
These words for this occasion
Not knowing before
This moment exactly what
I shall place upon this page.

I write down these lines
Without premeditation
Simply making this
Statement plain and clear for you
To ponder at your leisure.

Creativity
Wells up from deep within me
Erupting into
These few solid sentences
Evoking in you response.

Imagination
Writes from the depths of my heart,
Determination
Leading me, guiding me, and
Forging some concrete meaning.

I dip in the well
Dug deep within my soul to
Capture the essence
Of the notions inspired in
This very special moment.

The following poem is an old one from the Multiply group I thought I would share here… It may have appeared here long ago, but I doubt you mine my archives that deeply.

Yearnings Bared

Fingertips touching lightly
Contact nude intensely vibrant
Passion rising immediate
Waves flowing inward
Ebbing outward.
Subtle flush suffusing
Soft ivory flesh
Under hungry tongue
Glowing brilliant with joy,
Sharing essence.
Tight breath sighing
From ruby lips
Parted recent kissed.
Chasm heaving with
Tumultuous liquid fire,
Aching for fulfillment
Tautly withheld
Until desire ignites
Jubilant frenzy
Writhing in ecstasy.
Bodies meeting
Fusing volatile exploding
In universal orgasm
Gleaming ardent bright
In total completion.
Basking in heat of
Loving aura,
Stoking the embers
Back to fire before
The dew dries
On radiant skin.

I am grateful:

1.   I began my day fairly early even though I stayed up quite late.
2.   I did not go to town today.
3.   I have money again.
4.   My old work is thought provoking to me.
5.   I ordered Hope’s medicine from 1-800 Pet Meds and it did not cost as much as I expected.

I have enjoyed my Wednesday, and I hope yours was enjoyable as well. Take time to do something creative now. You may feel uninspired, but that is no excuse to neglect your work. You will only produce something worthwhile if you expend effort to make it happen.

Today I challenge you with this prompt: Write about inspiration. You may have some particular method to share with others, or you may wish to write about how elusive inspiration is. Whatever your angle, if you use this prompt please leave a link to your work in the comments below.

I hope your visit here has proved pleasant. If so, you may wish to subscribe to Chronicles. I love your input. If you have thoughts, suggestions, or criticism, please do not hesitate to leave a comment.

Always,
Jo Ann

    I don’t smoke anymore, but after reading that, I think I need a smoke……….

      You must be talking about my old poem. I am glad you liked it… and it must be working as intended if it makes you crave a cigarette. I quit in 2000 myself, and it reminds me I used to like them after…

    You make me smile every time I read your blog. Sometimes I only appreciate my writing if I haven’t seen it in some time.

      Thank you Lara. I am glad reading here is a happy experience. That is as it should be. I am so happy you visited. Come back soon.

    Going back and analyzing later is always a risky thing for me because creating and analyzing use different parts of the brain. So, if you didn’t put your work “out there” then you might revise it until you were happier with it, but then, only if you work and put your work out there will it lead to something. Looks like you’re doing just fine to me. 🙂

      Thank you Veronica… I love my older stuff, because it all seems so well done. I work harder for these newer pieces, often without inspiration. I think maybe I will come back to what I am doing later and think it worthwhile.
