Shelving My Inspiration


The prompt: Pull that book from the window sill, open it
there is that quote that always moves you, share it here
and then use it in a creative way.


My quote, my favorite:

"What would life be, if we had no courage to attempt anything?"


Vincent Van Gogh
My take:

What about you?
Would you live
Life and just
Be with me

If the two, the
We were given everything?
Had you figured
No dangers, having

Courage and stranger,
To me to accept and
Attempt honestly,
Anything.

I'm glad that you "attempted" and succeeded in creating this original poem. Plunging into creativity takes a courageous spirit. What a terrific way to define the spirit of Van Gogh's quote!
