"sweet spring is your
time is my time is our
time for springtime is lovetime
and viva sweet love”

(all the merry little birds are
flying in the floating in the
very spirits singing in
are winging in the blossoming)

lovers go and lovers come
awandering awondering
but any two are perfectly
alone there’s nobody else alive

(such a sky and such a sun
i never knew and neither did you
and everybody never breathed
quite so many kinds of yes)

not a tree can count his leaves
each herself by opening
but shining who by thousands mean
only one amazing thing

(secretly adoring shyly
tiny winging darting floating
merry in the blossoming
always joyful selves are singing)

"sweet spring is your
time is my time is our
time for springtime is lovetime
and viva sweet love”

Inspiration

My friend and fellow writer, Scotti Cohn is doing a program for third graders about writers and their process. She solicited answers from writer friends about where we get our ideas. It was a fun little exercise, and I thought I’d share my response:

Most of what I write begins with a question, but those questions come from so many places: reading history books or science articles, watching people, listening to my grandparents, watching my children, reading books, going for a walk. I think that just being present and open to whatever I’m experiencing inspires me, because I’m always thinking of questions, and I then I want to write something to explore the possible answers: What makes some people bury the past, while others celebrate it? When faced with cruelty, how can two people have such a dramatically different response? What happens to all those teeth? How might the ancient gods of the ocean respond to a devastating oil spill? How might house spirits communicate with one another? I write to find out the answers. For me, the act of writing is the joy and magic of exploration.

Where do you get your inspiration?
