A Touch of Inspiration …


What really inspires you? What warms you up inside and makes you feel so good that you just want to … well do whatever it is that you feel inspired to do?

But what causes the spark? What lights the fire inside? What makes the something inside of you come alive with desire? A desire so strong it burns, a driving need that grows within and urges you on. A special something? What is it?

We all have it inside us, waiting to come out,


A quiet gentle touch

whispering as it came.

Mmm, so very delicate

I was enraptured just the same.

It played upon my senses

calling out my name.


a current, ebbing flows

stirring my wishes and wants.

Changing dreams into great desires,

my inspiration into burning fires,

because of this feeling that grows.

A touch of Inspiration!
