a poem is born…

well of thoughts
begins to dry up,
heat of frustration
overwhelms me;
I begin to succumb,
soon exhausted,
strain of failures
showing clear.
in light of darkness,
I forget to notice,
the outlet I have
for this gloom.

I look not for language,
fancy words et al,
just a rain of words
to quench arid thirst
for realization.

like a bud takes form,
a rose is born;
from its petals
smile thoughts.
watered with inspiration,
it can survive;
bright in joyous sunlight,
it’ll never wilt.

poetry is the garden,
I always nourish,
with my dream.

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.
