Inspiration is a notion,
springing from some strong emotion.
Like a volcanic geyser spout,
suddenly it springs right out.
Emotions are the driving force,
I’ve yet to figure out the source.
It can appear from anywhere,
here and there and everywhere.
Inspiration may ignite
emotions that lay out of sight.
It’s like emotions have just waited
but they must be stimulated.
I’ve had inspiration come
from my stoma and my bum.
Maybe because it touched upon
a place from once a light had shone.
Maybe a stoma just confirms
by opening up this can of worms
that we are always vulnerable
to anything that’s horrible.
Stomas with their complications,
give to us some revelations
at what we say and feel and think,
that may well bring us to the brink.
It’s tough to have the irritation,
but that’s the stuff of inspiration.
We need to feel emotions stir
for inspiration to occur.
I have to say that up to date,
my stoma’s made me contemplate.
I know it could be so much worse
than inspiring rhyming verse.
