Vigilant souls hover:
Pen over paper
Brush over canvas
Fingers over instruments.

Spark and sizzle.

The tiniest intrusive gasp threatens to
Extinguish elusive inspiration, and
Temptation incites action
Before the vision ignites into flame.

The promise-filled pause is
Alive with kindling.

Breathe gently
Grant the words, colors, and notes their fire
Burning embers are fanned alive by the
Brooding dance of creator and reflection.
