I took this picture and wrote the following haiku, a few minutes ago, this evening, when I looked up from my desk, as I was enthusiastically writing the last chapters of the first draft of my fourth novel.
Subtle and intense.
My heart quivers, my head whirls.
That fleeting moment…
There are times, special moments, when words flow more easily.
It’s hard to know why, I wish I did, so that I could clear my schedule and prepare for the onslaught of overwhelming inspiration.
Sometimes I blame the full moon, the waning moon, the new moon, the blue moon or the harvest moon!
Other times I blame clear blue heavens, breathtaking sunsets, amazing dawns, stormy grey skies, or pearly white clouds.
What I do know is that when I feel the ideas rushing to my mind and the words flowing from my pen or fingers, it’s such a unique feeling that I wish I were there all the time.
Such is the delirious moment of creation, of course it must end, or else I’d never edit, rewrite or improve, or publish my work!
Happy weekend! I’ll be writing away…
