Soulful Sundays: Inspiration

Updated: May 6

Today, in contemplation, I began searching for inspiration,

I looked far and wide for the tie that binds,

Together the books of the greatest of minds,

But the words only caused me frustration.

Into nature I went, my humanity I was soon to forget,

I heard the rain fall and the wind blow,

I sat under the trees and watched the river flow,

But, alas, I found no enlightenment.

I went out on the town, to track the answer down,

I laughed and I cried to stories untold,

Of battles fought with friends new and old,

But inspiration was still nowhere to be found.

On my way home I let my mind roam,

And while the walk wasn’t long,

It circled a glimmering pond,

Which I gazed into, thinking I was alone.

Much to my surprise, I saw without eyes,

The very answer I had been after,

It was right there on the water,

And all I had to do was realize.

Inspiration, you see, is not something to seek,

It’s not something to uncover,

Or a truth to discover,

It’s waiting inside of you and me.

“To see a World in a grain of sand,

And a Heaven in a wild flower,

Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand,

And Eternity in an hour.”

What I could not make, I must thank Blake,

For his vision into places truly unreal.
