Peek A Pique
or is it
Pique A Peek?
Go ahead. Beyond that open gate... Behind the curtain. Over there. And here as well. Let's face it, curiosity can be found in lots of places.
A glimmer of glamour or a glop of gloom. It's there to discover. In the process, one can find out a lot about oneself. Beyond perspective. But that's a large part of it. Nothing boring about it in my opinion. Not at all.
Observations can often reveal and disclose. They don't necessarily need to be seen. The other senses can be working too. Independently as well as when joining forces.
Poems are not read:
they are reread.
Reread the poem, then read between the lines,
then look at it, then watch it, then peek at it: handle it like an object.
Contemplate its shadows, angles and dimensions.
I really do think that inspiration comes from day-to-day life.
I think there are things that pique our interest.
Sometimes they're in a great conversation with friends,
sometimes they are things you see live,
something you read, a movie trailer you watch...
I think inspiration is kind of laid out there.
One thing we have to practice is recognizing when it happens,
and recording that moment so we can come back to it.
Off on another trail...perhaps a peak. Perhaps.
