Life is Poetry

This time of year isn't what I'd call inspiring, exactly.  February should be declared the Official Month Of  Do Nothing.
 I'm an introvert all year round, but for some reason February makes me want to bury myself under a mound of blankets, turn on some melancholy movie scores, (Dario Marianelli, anyone?) and pretend that nothing exists beyond my cocoon. Or at least, February makes me want to do this more than I usually do.

That said, it's around this dreary time of year that I need to work hard to find inspiration. To find beauty in the mundane. To discover ways to fuel my creativity and work my brain. So, I've compiled a list of things that have been inspiring me spite of my caterpillar-like inclinations.

I am inspired by...

~the wind's wild cadence.

~the haunting ache that violins leave in my soul.

~the silent symmetry of mountains and sky.

~the way my baby sister's eyes sparkle when she talks about something she loves.

~the unwritten songs lingering in every moment. you can hear them if you listen hard enough.

~the way that some people can paint with words

~the amount of love that can be conveyed in a mere glance.

~the way that one object can contain a universe of stories.

~the quiet peace that a snowfall can create.

~the way that books can play games with your emotions and leave your soul in the most lovely kind of agony.

~the smell of wood smoke and pine in the air.

~the soft harmony of flavours in a cup of tea.

~the scratching of ink on paper.

~the way that laughter is an art in itself.

~the idea that life is poetry.
