10 Quotes on how Nature inspires Creativity

Nature is the best designer.

Nature has been a perennial source of inspiration for many! Artists, architects, designers imitate the design patterns of nature; poets describe its beauty and scientists try to unravel the mysteries of nature. A deep look into nature unlocks imagination and inspires creativity.

Nature paints the most wonderful pictures that can take your breath away and engulf you in their majestic beauty.One can not stop marveling at the designs of nature. The spiral of the sea- shells, the swirl of rose petals, and the arrangement of sunflower seeds, air vortex created by the flapping of wings of insects, the galaxy spirals and even the eye of a hurricane follow a geometrical pattern that is represented by the Fibonacci series.

    In your post you have beautifully explained how Nature inspires creativity with. colourful images.
    In this context , a free translation of a poem by Rabindrananth Tagore attempted by me is reproduced below .
    The branches had no flowers last night
    This morning they are in full bloom .
    Oh Gardener ! Do tell me
    How did this miracle come about .

    They come and go through the tree.
    Where do they hide their faces .
    Where is their sweet little home .
    And how far is their land .

    They hide in the corner of their home
    With ears close to the ground .
    The air calls them forth.
    How do they hear their tunes.

    There is no more time to lose .
    They hastily wash their faces .
    They dress themselves in many colours
    And leave their home behind .

    Is their beloved home
    Close to the sweet earth.
    Dada tells he knows for sure
    Their home is in the sky .

    In that remote realm floats
    Clouds of various hues.
    Where the light comes, comes air
    Opening the secret door .

    Beautiful post the quotes are rich in inspiration. I do hope wisdom dawns on us and we learn to respect and preserve nature.

    Well said and beautifully portrayed. I am a nature lover and at last we are seeing the fruits of the forests of the world being used to enhance the lives of mankind. I pray that we will work together with nature instead of against her, as in the greedy palm oil plantations of Indonesia, and I say her because it is the intuitive imagination of the feminine which sings to me in my garden and every step I take on her holy ground and every breath I take of her precious air which I am blessed to find pure on the edge of one of the most beautiful moors in the world. Love, David PS I follow you in anticipation Somali?

      Thank you for stopping by David, and also following my blog. Your words are like poetry and they make perfect sense. Nature is a divine gift to us. No wonder, we derive creative inspiration from her. 🙂
