A silhouette shines

in the Moonlight, a hoot pierces

the silence of night

spreading out its wings and claws

the snowy raptor takes a flight!

10 Quotes on how Nature inspires Creativity

badge

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.

Here is a collection of quotes that highlight the connection between nature and creativity and the creative inspiration that you can draw from Nature.
