    I can’t think one day
    my mind just drew a blank
    my eyes watered and my
    eyes just blinked

    I said good-bye poetry
    I am finished with you
    what’s it gonna take
    before someone hears
    these words
    after 33 years of writing
    this is for the birds

    Thought I heard someone say
    in the distance, almost the time
    I was gonna pray,
    “don’t put that pen down”
    “it ain’t nothing new”
    just the poetry blues

    “more like dead if you ask me”
    its laid back not saying a thang
    no whispering not even a breeze
    just a all of a sudden freeze

    two, three days went by and
    I was sure I was through with poetry,
    just then poetry spoke
    “Grab your pen”
    I want to talk, I looked all crazy around
    the room what the hell was this!
    it’s 3:00 AM in the morning,
    I must be mad, or crazy I assume

    “Can’t you see I am sleeping”
    I don’t want to talk to you anymore
    I am through with you poetry so walk on out
    that door.

    Poetry was quite and I fell back to sleep
    but then I felt the pressure of him stepping across my
    mind he peeped. You know you can’t let me go
    you’re the moon and I am your ocean, we flow
    together and make sweet motion
    So get the pen and lets make love tonight, let me
    touch your soul so you can write.

    I stumbled on up against my will
    but I knew he was up to something that would
    make the ink spill
    guess I can come correct and safely say
    ain’t no mo poetry blues living here
    today, until the next time my mind
    wants to go out and play!

    Spoken by a true artisan, whether it's on paper, canvas or multi-media we can't escape the calling.

    "Your the moon and it's the ocean together you make sweet motion" Nice...
