You once told me that all I needed was
one idea

and how quickly I’ve learned
what one idea
can do:

One idea
can carry the wind and
find the beauty in the storm.

One idea
can carve the canyon and
give you the wings to fly accross it.

One idea
can unfold the story,
inspire the songs,
and hold your attention.

One idea
can turn an ache into a glow,
a limitation into a possibility —

a single memory into a fairytale.

One idea
can last a lifetime
in the heart,
in love,
in gratitude.

You once told me that all I needed was
one idea

and how easy writing became when that
one idea
was
you.

Beautiful afterglow at this evening at Sugar Beach.

One of my favorite idea-inspired poems by Rumi:

Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing
and rightdoing there is a field.
I’ll meet you there.
When the soul lies down in that grass
the world is too full to talk about.”

– Rumi
