Inspiration – my
Companion in
Every pursuit; I’d
Be lost without
Every moment
Lost in its depths
I forget lament
Time flies away
Years like seconds

Inspiration – my
Guide to emotions
Paper to quills of
Subtle points; even
In friendship, it’s
Always ubiquitous
Its wield over me
Isn’t scary, I trust
The path it takes

Inspiration – the
Light that has led
Me to where I am
Today; it’s wicks
Burning eternally
In oil of hopes; it
Shows me future
As I forge on with
Expectations and
Desires born new

Thursday Poets Rally – Week 32

Last rally, I celebrated 900 posts. This rally, on November 4th, co-incidentally is my blogging’s 4th birthday! Ji, the Rally and my milestones seem to have perfect timing!

Fragile winged beauty
Welcome to my humble home
Perfect, that is you

I’ve been bestowed with a Perfect Poet award in Week 31 of the Rally. I accept it with this little haiku. I’d like to nominate The 10th Muse for Week 32 awards!

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
