Streaming inspiration

in spurts and subtle flows

just visiting; dropping by

and making the whole thing

all seem worthwhile.


Inspiration in a word & feeling

lend gentle caresses

to the cool evening


Inspired we continue

to jostle our memories

and dreams lending

hope & faith for free

and trying to light up

the evening clouds

with a glowing gemlike flame

created out of love.
