Creative Inspiration

it is like seeing her eyes
across the room for the first time
or tasting something truly wonderful
like you've never had before

it touches me
in that sweet spot
up high

and sends a little shiver
up my ribs and back
that ends in my face
making me smile ear to ear

it takes form slowly
a bit at a time
sometimes darting away
and coming back with more

it is bright
it is icy
it is happy
it is love

this thing that comes
when I allow it
is a gift
from the outside force within

it is not mine
I do not own it
yet it is mine to choose
what to do with

this divine gift
this divine responsibility
is the creative inspiration
by which I am a channel
