Crush in the Dark: When Inspiration Hits

Crush in the Dark

When Inspiration Hits



‡Let Inspiration Find You‡

When we are deep within our selves such as during mediation, prayer, communing with our higher aspects, etc… we are transplanted into a void darkness that feels to me like a sacred womb where we can access all. We can submerge within the void with a intention for knowledge, inspiration, direction, guidance, etc… and emerge from it refreshed with insight that sometimes is Johnny~on~the~spot and sometimes is revealed in stages. We can also have great experiences in the void with no agenda so to speak, and just see what comes up. 

This blog post is about inspiration. When I photographed Steve practicing his guitar, he just happened to have his Crush shirt on. From there later on the idea came into my awareness “Crush in the Dark” as a blog post title and accompanying poem.



May we all meet up with Inspiration that is the winged fuel to carry us to heightened states of Soul in action, well being, and provide a sense of accomplishment and purpose

Let’s be open to inspiration arriving at any moment ~ let’s stop, listen, and attune to the Great Spirit indwelling and pay homage to this voice with follow through in spirit guided direction


inspiration that comes in “off hours”

inspiration that finds you in a spontaneous moment

Artistic Inspiration

“Inspiration (from the Latin inspirare, meaning “to breathe into”) is an unconscious burst of creativity in a literary, musical, or other artistic endeavour. The concept has origins in both Hellenism and Hebraism. The Greeks believed that inspiration or “enthusiasm” came from the muses, as well as the gods Apollo and Dionysus. Similarly, in the Ancient Norse religions, inspiration derives from the gods, such as Odin. Inspiration is also a divine matter in Hebrew poetics. In the Book of Amos the prophet speaks of being overwhelmed by God’s voice and compelled to speak. In Christianity, inspiration is a gift of the Holy Spirit.”

A few Ancient models of inspiration

“In Greek thought, inspiration meant that the poet or artist would go into ecstasy or furor poeticus, the divine frenzy or poetic madness. He or she would be transported beyond his own mind and given the gods’ or goddesses own thoughts to embody.”

“In Christianity, inspiration is a gift of the Holy Spirit. Saint Paul said that all scripture is given by inspiration of God (2 Timothy) and the account of Pentecost records the Holy Spirit descending with the sound of a mighty wind. This understanding of “inspiration” is vital for those who maintain Biblical literalism, for the authors of the scriptures would, if possessed by the voice of God, not “filter” or interpose their personal visions onto the text. For church fathers like Saint Jerome, David was the perfect poet, for he best negotiated between the divine impulse and the human consciousness.”

<Love yourself enough to bring life to your passions>

The Great Ones watch to see who might take a chance

Crush in the Dark

remarks with a spark

rock ~ knock ~ zero clock

shadowy dusk

swept in silky grays and red

smokey hues

it was still night ~ dreamy ~ when stars are born

a bird in a tree ~ offering a decree ~ watching me

rune rapture 

a magnetism I fell under

then it struck

inspiration instruct

desire it 

fiery pit ~ no denying it

Crush in the Dark

remarks with a spark

  rock ~ knock ~ zero clock

to milky morn

he played electric guitar

Saturn reborn

strumming ~ up and down the neck


sound vibration 

mystical incantation 

come ~ hither communication

foot on the pedal ~ wah wah 

be the vessel

precious metal ~ overdrive ~ distortion ~ above sea level

fret boards ~ strings ~ burn up ~ wind up

tuner ~ in put jack ~ heads up

Crush in the Dark

remarks with a spark

  rock ~ knock ~ zero clock

early spring bird

still in the branches

channels acts of chances

a hook up ~ a build up ~ a let up

grace cup ~ filler up ~ more pick up

Crush in the Dark

remarks with a spark

  rock ~ knock ~ zero clock

now becomes the daylight

 electric guitar ~ accent mark ~ birthmark

encouragement ~ incentive

soul directive

Crush in the Dark

remarks with a spark

rock ~ knock ~ zero clock
