Its either there or not!
It cant be forced
When I write
The poem starts with a thought
I dont know where it will go when I start
Gradually the poem reveals itself
There is no exact plan, no outline
And after Im done, its truly done
It starts and finishes as I write
Sometimes my thoughts
Taken an interesting twist
Sometimes they surprise me!
My favorite is the poem that seems effortless
Its there, I dont need to force it
The rhymes appear one after one
The ideas flow like a river in the sun
Then its such a pleasure to write
Its the best feeling of all!
And after that if a friends reads it
Its icing on the cake for me
I write because I have to, its a need
But how wonderful if others read it
The circle of creation goes round and round
What I have created is re-created in anothers mind
They see things that I dont see
After all, different lives weve lived
Thats the beauty of a work of art
It evokes emotions, different ones!
