Post any poetry here. It's just too hard to define "inspired" in this context, so we will settle for that which inspires.

"Today Will Be The Best Day Of My Life" by Jon Katz

I don't actually know the title of this poem. My sister sent it to me. It is beautiful, expecially because I live in the country with lots of woods and walks through them.

Written by Joh Katz

"In the deep woods, light whispers,
I have to be silent to catch the sound,
it is, I am surprised to hear,
music, the light is singing me a song,
as she dances through the forest,
stopping here, then there,
moving gracefully
over the dark forest floor.
Listen to me, she whispers,
clear your frantic mind and rejoice.
My music, she trills,
will circle the earth forever and ever,
and fall, like newborn angels
trying their wings,
to the forest floor.
Sing your song to me,
she says, I will give you
the title,
"Today Will Be The Best Day Of My Life."

And Spirit whispered, "There are no limits."

We are akin to the aspen forests, seemingly separated but in actuality, one organism.
