In search of inspiration...
I needed to visit my favorite winter spot filled with the promise of Spring,
filled with lemons trees,
and foliage of every kind.
I looked towards the piper,
and the statue wearing a hat of baby dafs.
I didn’t find it in the flowers wearing ribbons of special mention,
Even though red ribbons adorned beautiful flowers,
and the fountains did sing.
But it was when I walked in the gardens a bit further,
passed all the beautiful flowers, the grand celebration of foliage, and the garden statues escorting in Beloved Spring.
And then all of a sudden I found what I was searching for, my little creative muse...
There amongst the flowers and the wonder of nature was a little girl with her sketch book and pencil. She knelt beneath the flowers that she captured on her little sketch pad. She snuggled so closely to the flower that it cascaded onto her book, letting her trace it's very shadow, She had already learned the way to embrace inspiration was to simply surrender to creativity.
Sometimes seeing a child embracing what I struggle with, reminds me to just be.
I think that God led me to this little dove to remind me to stop searching for spirit outside, but to embrace the child within.
