Oh inspiration, why do you tease me so?
You’re there when least wanted, in the middle of a work day or while driving in traffic. Thoughts come fast, complete, sometimes too quickly to be noted
But when there’s time to focus, you won’t be caught. You skip on the breeze, playing hide and seek on the edges of consciousness, impossible to chase.
Then suddenly inspiration deigns to cooperate and how it all comes together! Sentences forming, notes spilling into the air, pictures taking form on canvas, all ready to grab the beholder!
And the artist rests, until the next battle with inspiration begins and it’s time to run, to chase inspiration again.
