Confession of a Poet

In the latest hours, the moon shines very bright Igniting the lower fields with its mercy A poem comes to fruition in this light All can read, as it’s shared with love completely I confess, this poem was from my calm heart To shine as the cool moon, listen to each part Field is open to my mind of mystery My ideas shine onto all that are mighty

    I like this Russel. The inspiration for poetry can come at anytime, but it's always better in the stillness of the night. The Stillness Of the Night. sounds like a nice title. Thanks for sharing. Lucilla

    My poems come to me really, really early in the morning. But, that means I have to get up at 4 am and write. It's worth it! I think you have captured the heart of a poet precisely! Good Luck...Thanks for your comment...xx Holly Moore

    Russell, this is a lovely poem, my poems usually come to me over days of thinking, I am not a fast poet, sometimes even in dreams, best of luck in the contest. Constance
