A Walk With Inspiration


I took a walk with Inspiration

His stride, much shorter than mine today

His gaze, drawn to all the yellow dandelions poking through the grass

I call to him, “Come now, Inspiration,

catch up, it’s getting late.”

His little steps quicken

A caterpillar

emerges from the blades

and wriggles across the path

Inspiration giggles and crouches down to watch

I turn, and call again

“This way, Inspiration,

we’re running out of time.”

He bends down lower

his cheek brushes the earth

he waves good-bye to his friend

jumps up and continues along the path

“Amateurs look for inspiration; the rest of us just get up and go to work” ~Chuck Close

“You can’t wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club.” ~Jack London
