Inspiration

It blew in against the tide
with so little fanfare
that it startled the longshoremen,
who had taken to rust in the salt air.
The smiles of self-congratulation
rivaled the blaze of the rising sun.

“For patience and perseverance,”
said a hanger-on
who had practiced neither.

Tonight all along the long shore
The scritch of pencil on paper.
