    I'm amused by
    the muses that urge one
    to flow until the
    epiphany is done
    Funny... No
    but it strikes me as being odd
    one experience results in a dry pen, while another
    has us writing as if touched by the hand of God
    A rose...certainly smells as sweet
    by any other name
    but that flower didn't get me to write of beauty
    I had to see a faded leaf before the right words came
    Or on the flip side, you'd think a death
    would cause my ink to cry
    Yet, it wasn't until storm clouds caught my eye
    that I could scribe of the sorrow that leaked from my sky
    And romance does not always fill me with
    a yearning to describe the nuances of it
    It's not the moon in June, but the mutual adoration
    of souls, that emits the phrases that I covet
    Surely would be simpler if those muses
    could always be of our own choosing
    But easier, is not nearly as interesting...
    So...
    What compels our pens to scribe
    and what has our pens refusing
    Just strikes me as odd at times...
    Oddly, amusing...

    Sister that was so true and deep. It would probably pass over the average peep.:spin:

    We as writers can go from hot to cold,but when you've hit it:playball: out of the box like this one. It has to be told.

    Great job poet!:great: :terrific:

    To say that I hit the nail on the head was awfully kind robboy. Much appreciated poet.
    No limit to what our words can convey when we're in that vibe Rich, thank you brotha.
    Glad you enjoyed 4Everluv, your pen is probably resting up for burst of writing from you. Thank you.

    Hi sis
    I deeply agree
    It was from the muse of silent
    that came this wonderful creation.
    flow on sis..your ink is indeed feeling the need to release..:)

    Peace & Love

    Sometimes when the pen is in it's solitude, it thinks of much to say. Thank you Blue, we'll see what it decides to speak on next.
    Yes indeed, Patrice, thank you poetess.
