Inspiration

Inspiration
An elusive butterfly

Suddenly it comes.
You have a thought.
You sit down ready to write.
Full of expectancy
You pick up your pen


AND STARE AT A BLANK PAGE


Inspiration
That elusive butterfly

Suddenly it is gone.
What has happened?
You reach down deep
Into your very soul
But without success.


AND STARE AT A BLANK PAGE


Inspiration
Mysterious, elusive butterfly

Full of determination
You pick up your pen again.
And put it to the paper.
You begin to write
Whatever comes to mind.


THE PAGE IS NO LONGER BLANK


Inspiration                                            
The elusive butterfly

Can't stay away this time.
You hear a flutter.
And there she is.
You have lured her back
Because you didn't give up.

Just a little encouragement for my writer friends who may be staring at a blank page even now. This was written during a write in for an online group where I used to be a member. The prompt was a quote by Jack London: "You cannot wait for inspiration.You have to go after it with a club."
