April 18, 2019 The Inkewell

Inspiration is elusive like a dragonfly,

A sparkling, fleeting jewel,

Hovering ever out of reach.

If I could catch one such jewel from the sky,

Pluck it down and suck it dry

Like a leech,

I might have more to write,

More bedazzling pieces of fantasy flight

Within my human reach.



“Writing is no trouble: you just jot down ideas as they occur to you. The jotting is simplicity itself–it is the occurring which is difficult.” —Stephen Leacock
