deadline

Take that pen in hand

Write as though your life’s at stake

But speak from the heart

Are the words perfect

Will they touch another’s soul

With visions that dance

Windows turn your head

Clouds distract your mind a bit

Inspiration, come!

  1. After writing 2 posts yesterday for a very long time, your poem speaks volumes to me. I did not realize how much writing is a part of me until I wrote again. I did not realize how much I need to write when my writing had stopped, it wasn’t until I wrote again that I began to feel again ………..and a part of me came back to life.

    Thank you for writing such a beautiful poem. I am sure that every writer and poet who reads your poem will feel the emotions of it.

  4. Put so beautifully Annette! You truly capture the joy and adventure that is writing =) I especially resonate with your words about those windows and clouds that take us away moments at a time, but oh, does that inspiration come!
