Everyday Inspiration, Day Ten: Let the Scene Write Itself…

Where is the silence? There’s no longer silence When the artificial invades the village And I can’t see any pink or yellow poui anymore Once, there was little evidence of humankind With a winding road leading to a forgotten fortification And snippets of quaint homesteads on the hillsides Birdsongs bombarded the atmosphere in chorus So […]

Everyday Inspiration, Day Six: The Space to Write…

It’s as mind clashing with reality, imagination bordering realism, and thoughts being transported from my head to my hand. I think that ideal space is within me. That place where all the artificial noise is eliminated. It’s like a spark, a feeling, a sensation, an alarm that begins an uncontrollable blaring at a most unusual […]
