Inspiration around me …

everywhere around me,
there is inspiration to write.

drops of November rain,
kissing young green leaves,
slipping into the red lips
of a rose about to blossom;
a lone ray of warm sunlight,
escaping the black clouds;
showing me there is hope,
even when gloom shrouds.

the cold biting gust of wind,
its breath on my windows,
the warm coo of the pigeon,
from the ceiling’s shadows.

Nature’s joys everywhere,
it does surround our lives,
in Her arms, I am a child,
and my imagination thrives.


Shared with One Single Impression (#245, Nature).


(’12, Nov 04)

Poetry & writing to me 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.
