Costa Rican Sun and Poetry

DSCN6766I am here in Costa Rica again.  The words of the Nicaraguan poet, Ruben Dario comes to mind:

Now is come the month of roses!
To the woods my verse has flown
Gathering fragrance and honey
From the blossoms newly blown.

I am grateful for the opportunity and hope to write some good poetry here.  What do you do for inspiration?
