“capturing inspiration”

Inspired by photography of Brooke Shaden at:   http://brookeshaden.com/gallery/

shiny power from

imagination’s station

bursts into dusty room

of beautifully tired mind;

ideas full-throttle steaming,

bells clang, lantern gleaming,

an archetypical locomotive

that sweeps any confusion

off flexing steel rails onto

sooty hardwood flooring;

while graceful barefoot

thoughts pose, entranced

by marvelous miniature

revelation which may

inspire fresh energy

for creativity; black

and white contrast

needs fleshing out,

expressed in muscular

tones of new dance steps,

art’s arabesque.

    Cool to marry the ballerina with the locomotive and consider the inspiration behind both…extraordinary!

    What a cautionary tale – make sure dreaming doesn’t get in the way of achieving!

    She is graceful barefoot, true, and a very graceful poem, and inspiring poem.

    Interesting use of the locomotive as metaphor for inspiration. And a very creative interpretation of the image from power of the engine to dancer’s grace of the woman..

    while graceful barefoot

    thoughts pose…makes for an interesting wrap…

    i think at times we need those things that will burst in/slip in and surprise us…
    they keep the magic in the world a bit….
