Sunday Scribblings: What is an idea?

This week's Sunday Scribblings' theme is "Ideas".

An idea is like a seed. It starts out small, but it has lots of promise. If properly nurtured and cared for, it can grow into something really big and beautiful.

An idea is like a tapeworm. It wriggles and squirms inside us, trying to get out.

An idea is like soap. It's slidy, so if you don't hold onto it, it will slip away.

An idea is like a gopher. Out of the blue it pops up, here and there, looks around, and if no-one pays any attention to it, it disappears back into its hole.

An idea is like a wildfire. You can throw cold water on it and it will fizzle out, but if the fire is hot enough, nothing can stop it. It can spread instantly, igniting the world around you.

An idea is like a lightbulb. It lights up our lives and makes people see things more clearly.

Have you had any good ideas lately?

not sure i want a tapeworm idea...
a potential 35 foot of intestinal parasite...then again, maybe that'd fit quite well with my usual dismal posts :)

excellent use of the prompt :)
