Sometimes inspiration for a poem comes unexpectedly—a nudge of wind in the trees, a birdsong, a deep longing or a picture. You never know what will stir this sensitive part of you and help you channel your creative magic into this world. If you are open to communication with that part of yourself and with the transcendent whispers from your surroundings, you may write something touching, thought-provoking, and beautiful.
Once, I saw a picture of a girl feeding her reindeer. It touched my soul profoundly, and the following poem came to life:
A Girl with Reindeer Mother Earth sheds a tear over forgotten connection between what’s human and what’s hers: moon, trees, rain, snow, wind, stars, animals, roots, plants. She shouts: Look at them, look! In vain. She treasures a recollection: a girl feeding her reindeer which gather around her in trust, in love, in friendship they look into her eyes. Mother Earth sighs and whispers - where is this girl? Is she still there? Then, Mother Earth weeps as she knows: the snow will melt, the reindeer will flee, the girl will fade away as so will we…
