In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Inspiration.”
This week, the Photo Challenge is to show with one or more photos:”What is your inspiration? What moves you? What is it that never fails to motivate you, to get you going, or make you happy?” For me, a major inspiration is getting out into fresh air. If I am feeling blah or muddled, getting outside–maybe to garden in the summer, or to shovel snow in the winter, is the best solution. I like hiking so I was going to look for some pictures taken on a nature trail.
Then I sat down with my computer next to the back window and saw the evening sky–post rainfall and prior to forecasted thunderstorms. Right away I grabbed my iPhone and went out onto the deck to take some pictures–I’ve learned that the sky changes quickly. Then I started to jot down some descriptive words and ended up being absorbed for the next while composing two poems: a haiku and tanka.
