Inspiration

doves-1

With the poet

It does not begin with a

Blank page

 

With the artist

It does not begin with an

Empty canvas

 

With the musician

It does not begin with

Silent instruments

 

Before pen is put to paper

And brush is stroked on canvas

And notes become melodies

There is inspiration

 

It’s soft whispering that fills the ear

And images flashing in the mind

And music tickling the soul

 

It emanates

Before a beginning and after an ending

Like a newborn taking his first breath

Or a dying man taking his last

 

Enlightenment exists before manifestation

Gives power to random words

Splendor to smears of paint

Expression to incidental notes

 

Whether it comes

From joy or torment

Nothing is created

Until it is embraced and released
