Seeking inspiration

Can come
In the strangest
Of ways
Sometimes in seconds
Sometimes not for days.
If we go searching
It hides right away;
It usually strikes
On a dull sort of day,
Or whilst we’re in the shower,
Or walking the dog,
Or admiring how flames
Curl around a gnarled log.
Inspiration finds us,
Not the other way round;
When we try to divine it,
It soon runs aground.
