Inspire Me

Today’s Poetry Prompt: Try one of the inspirational ideas before you write your next poem.

Evolution by Langdon Smith

When you were a tadpole and I was a fish
In the Paleozoic time.
And side by side on the ebbing tide
We sprawled though the ooze and slime.
Or skittered with many a caudal flip
Through the depths of the Cambrian fen,
My heart was rife with the joy of life,
For I loved you even then.
