Inspiration


Mind like a kaleidoscope stores
images and whirls them into space.
They loose identity,  but reclaim soul
with each reincarnation of form.
Shapes and colours reinvent themselves,
lead down different pathways to an end
entirely unknown to their creator,
but recognised as the destination,
once is has appeared upon the screen.

Thanks to Tess at Magpie Tales for giving us this chance of yet another flight of fancy..

  11. Oh my ... I am reading your words, loving them, feeling their absolute creativity ... then going on in the back of my mind is: "Oh, I love this painting and oh dear did I miss Tess's prompt." I love what you did to the photo ... so transformational, like the poem.
