Inspiration [Inspiration]

Like the drops of rain
on a thirsty ground
Like the gleaming moon
in the darkest night
…inspiration comes!

It is…
the instigator of our pen
a light unto their paths
a song in their mouth
as the truths of the world
(and the lies too)
become characters on paper

Without inspiration

I am like the Uku tree, knowing no wind
still and lifeless though with branches
I am like the Nile River of golden deeps
but cant tap its root to cities beyond
I am like a letter written
and sent without an address

In the arms of inspiration
the pen and its wielder
become inspiration!
