Every Sunday we serve up a buffet of inspiration to spark some creation.

We also hope you’ll share your own dishes with us.

Poets are invited to post one of their own poems in the comment section.  Something sparked by or about this week’s topic.

Or if you just don’t have anything that matches, give us something a little different than this week’s topic and we’ll call it a dessert.

Inspiration Buffet:

This week’s Inspiration Buffet features photos by The Pixelman and a poem from Lorraine Cipriano.

Aquarian Soul Sister
by Lorrain Cipriano

Marching to a different drum beat
a great change is now upon her
the moody and reckless visionary
this shift in energy inevitable
complacency coming to an end
sparkly point in time briefly
lifts maddening depression
her soul like an instrument
attuned to the world rhythm
this journey leads to paths
weaved into relationship webs
where wisdom of the past trumps
foolish decisions made in haste
larger collectives molding her
finally in the present moment
so calm entering a new realm
refusing to morph back into
the status quo and instead going
fearlessly to a sacred sanctuary
where fantastical ideas emerge
heavy veils of human suffering
become transparent as she begins
to challenge authorities with art
making the unknown known
in the middle of the universe
