  • arousal of the mind to special unusual activity or creativity

Thank you, Google.

An especially unusual creation, this inspiration here written, inspired by you.  Aware suddenly of a solution, I reach out on my side of the equarium, splashing an eddy of our fluid cohabitation of time/space concurrent current currently across your way.  We connect:  inspiring.  You certainly are divine.  Arousing?  Please.  And yes I do have a particular action in mind.  Sleeping, actually.  

Allergens can be inspired or could be inspiring.  Anything could be, actually.  Poems have been written about cupboards and keys, cans and clapboards, carnations and canola.   If you’re lucky you can tell kit from canola. 

Inspiration can come within or from without, but without a creative impulse it cannot, for it is that intangible energy that transcends logic and ranges into the realm of art, be it a magnum opus or a better mousetrap, that wells up somehow within as we ponder, think, dream, aspire or desire. 

Inspire, be inspired.  Write a poem.
