Redefining inspiration

You know
you’re a poet
when mundane
moments conjure
extraordinary words
that redefine people’s
perception of inspiration.

    Inspiration is the injection of ideas
    that the surrounding infuse
    and we unconsciously reveal
    the insight of the feel
    nothing special , is more than most ordinary
    everyday is always better than anniversary
    life is for learning diversity
    inspire me..again
    inspire regain
    life..even if ithas inherent pain

    • Wonderfully penned poem, my friend! Inspiration infinitely inspires. The WordPress community is proof of this wrap-around, M.C. Escher figure eight style 🙂 Hope you are having a relaxing weekend!

  2. Tyler, I can relate well to this one! Last night I wrote a short poem in response to photographing two snails I noticed while my husband and I were out walking – they were also out for a stroll.

    • This is wonderful to hear, Wendy! It really brought a smile to my face thinking about two couples from different species sharing the same path and partnership. May we never take for granted the marriage between earth and ourselves 🙂

    I like to create something out of the mundane and ordinary. The smallest things can be extraordinary. 🙂

    • I totally agree with you, my friend! It’s funny how other people look at me strangely when I wax poetic about a cloud or tree, but I want to shift their focus and transcend the ordinary by making inspiration boundless. Hope you are having a relaxing weekend and keep up the excellent work on your blog!
      Tyler 🙂

        People look at me funny when I tell them I write fairy tales, but we can all use a dose of magic, the perception-shifting focus that nature and beauty can bring. Going camping tomorrow — packing up everything including the camp sink today!! 🙂

    You also know you’re a poet when you get lost in thought and miss lunch! Poems can placate the soul, but the stomach still growls…

    • I guess that describes the dilemma of all who have a passion in which they are profoundly engaged….Oh dear, I may have missed what craziness the world was up to this morning in deference to my characters’ intriguing (to me) activities… Cheers!
