Write Now!

I sit and stare at empty page
my mind a big black hole
my pencil sharp and at  the ready
as if I’ve no control

then words begin to form
my pencil flits and flies
and rhyming words, oh how
my mind is really tried

It kind of makes my head rush
I do not want to brag
but writing never seemed more fun
than in the days of “poetry tag”

When poets gathered in a room
a topic then was given
the poet pounded out a poem
like they were truely driven

I miss those days of poetry tag
inspiration came to me
on fairy wings and moon beams
hearts bared for all to see

    It seems obstacles are part of any process even writing.. is it so that we appreciate the journey or simply to infuriate us? Thank you for sharing and for your comments. God Bless, Dima

    Trudy this is a gem - I miss the tag days also - I actually tried to get them going again but I guess it just didn't take hold - I've been so busy I have had very little time to be on the site which does break my heart I just love it here - Hopefully things will fall into a routine soon and I'll have more time - God Bless, MJ
