The Picket

Waiting.  Waiting for inspiration

to hit like a bolt of lightning.

Without a cloud in the sky-

yeah, right.

Sea Urchins. St. John. Virgin Islands Virgin IslandsVirgin Islands Coral Reef National Monument.

Ideas are like a box full of bugs.

Just pick one out and

inspect it-hmmm-legs-8

hairy.  Toes-hmmm-hard to

see-none, I guess.

You could go on like this

with your bugs

until you came up with

something worth parading

out–but until then, all

you have now is a

box full of hidden,

beautiful bugs-marching

with signs-picketing-

for their freedom-let

us out of here!  It’s Spring

don’t you know that?

The weather’s warmer

and we don’t have

to be in your box

to stay warm

anymore!
