Pathways

Inspiration
Comes
From many sources:
A word
A sight
A sound
A colour
A memory
A flash,
Or gradual
Consciousness
Of an idea,
Sometimes
Arriving
Fully formed,
At others
Winding,
Twisting
Gathering momentum
And gaining ground
Like tumbleweed,
Forging
Ahead to a
Clear vision,
Or slowly
Building
Brick by brick
To a workable
Scheme,
Often arriving
Unexpectedly,
Without warning,
But always
With a sense
Of urgency.

This poem was prompted by yet another new project, arriving from nowhere by a combination of the above circumstances, and still under wraps…

    Have been missing your poems which this time made me of Robert Frost’s ‘The Road Not Taken’. Maybe it’s your title. Oh I wonder what you have under wraps Cathy ๐Ÿ˜„
