A Poets Query

Within the silence beats the clock.
Counting time till the next shock.
A profound verse you can't rehearse.
Sometimes a blessing, sometimes a curse.

The only choice we get sometimes.
Is a little rhythem and that it rhymes.
To pluck the strings of the readers heart.
And blow their minds right off the chart.

We wait impatient for the line.
To pick like grapes sweet from the vine.
In quiet commune with our spirit.
We ask the Lord that we will hear it.

With pen in hand we scribe a thought.
That with our mind, it could be cought.
The endings never guarenteed.
To be the flower that we seed.

    Robert this speaks to everyone of us writing, a thought comes to you, you write it down and wait for the next line to pop into your head .Then you change it till it reads like what you want it to convey .Love evey line in your poem! Awesome work . Anne
