My inspiration

Today's 100 words:

Last night I found my inspiration. He came to me in the form of Phil, an 86-year-old man my husband had once sung with in the choir. Phil is a poet, and each time we've met him as we did last night--in the grocery store--he's said that he wants to give me some of his poems. Last night he did. I read them as we drove home, impressed by his obvious talent. Later I went to my office, eager to work on my own poetry, inspired by this man who has never stopped following his passion.


  1. Would it be kosher for you to share one of them? I'd love to read a little of him, but will be inspired by him regardless!

    1. I think I'd feel better if I asked him first. I'll let you know. :)
