Quiet Musings

How You Inspire

Like the warmth of the sun

as it softens the snow

and the seedling beneath

when it knows how to grow

Like the thrill of an eaglet

when the wings start to soar

with it's talons let go

of the comfort before

Like the brawn of an ocean

as it pounds at the stone

creating a masterpiece

that may never be known

Like the glow of an ember

near the heart of a fire

thank you my friend

this is how you inspire
