Inspiration

I went to the well
just me on my own
Wanting inspiration
I threw in a stone

It seemed to go forever
I didn't hear a sound
the well was empty
no inspiration found

I went to the mountains
Surely it would be there
so I stood and waited
continuing to stare

I looked at an eagle
was it set upon his back
Did he hold the answer
that inspiration I lack?

I went home dejected
Looked into your eyes
My heart became full
my pen no longer dry

Verses like water
Flow from my pen
Inspiration like waves
Over and over again

    It looks like you have something better than a glass of wine to inspire you (see my comment on your post to my fleeting verse poem). You have your own personal muse at home. Enjoyed your poem.

    Hard to put our finger on what inspires us! Sometimes the most innocuous events can inspire us! You always choose very interesting topics my west coast friend! Cheers!
