Inspiration

Written by: Richard Lamoureux

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
