Reflecting

I wonder if the poems birthed from my soul might be, like my days upon this earth , numbered. . . For recently that place - where my seedling thoughts once sprouted in abundance - has lain nearly fallow. And so it is I’m brought to contemplate. . . How long can poems keep springing forth from me? Yes, days are fleeting, but looking to sky, I see infinity. . . so I wish on boundless stars that thoughts will yet appear to Illuminate my mind, reflecting poems shining on and on. an unposted oldie

    I like the form on this poem. I seem to be in a big writing slump lately. When I write nothing seems to appeal to me or sound good. This is a wonderful poem and I am so behind in my reading. They just announced that our interest rates will remain low for a while yet. that is good news. love phyl

    How long can poems keep sprouting from me? << I've thought about this time and time again. I hope it never ends, but... who's to say it won't? Just keep enjoying the moment I think and write what comes natural to you in the time the thoughts are fresh. Old poems are fun to look back on! Wonderful etheree... got me thinking...

    Andrea, this is nicely done. Isn't it funny where inspiration comes from? You sum it up so well. Sometimes fertile, sometimes fallow--yet your talent with words is always there at the ready. Thank-you for all you do and say. It is a pleasure to read.

    Hey Toots! Glad I stopped by before heading off to bed. I really enjoyed the word fallow here, it is perfectly placed, makes me want to stay in that line. Thanks for your kind words, always. Happy Easter, back. Hugs, Cyndi

    Instead of the ol' adage, (writers block), I like your use of the word"fallow" Andrea, it really gives this great write a huge burst ! And fear not dear poet.... we all (poets), roast whence our thoughts become wizened ! Great write ! Have a wonderful week....much love, james

    I suppose, for some, the well runs dry. I doubt it will for you. I've been going for 40 years. It started when I was playing in professional orchestras. I had a lot of time to write because services were only two and one half hours each day. Afternoons free, besides practicing the orchestra music I painted and wrote poetry. I sometimes have to scratch for a subject, but am still going. I must keep trying to communicate. Love, daver

    I just love this Andrea, even if it is an oldie.. When last have I written an Etheree? Yours made me smile today. Have a fabulous day :) love Wilma

    I completely understand your question/concern. My thought is that writing keeps the gray matter working. At least I'm hoping that is the case. Nicely done. Jack

    Diamonds for diamonds, this one's a gem. Sorry to be corny, but whatever. This is rich as ever, Andrea.

    Nice shape and poem, Andrea. I am sure thoughts will come to you. Needless worry :) Your poems have always been great. I don't think they will ever going to stop coming out of you!

  1. Date: 3/27/2013 4:48:00 PM

    Andrea; This is beautiful. An old poem that you post today will be old tomorrow and someone will read it. You will always write beautiful poems. The day will come, but that is up to God. As for now keep writing.... Lucilla SoupMail

    everything about this is wonderful, from the shape to the ideas to the words you've chosen. i'm sure your poetic days are far from over...

  1. Date: 3/27/2013 1:48:00 PM

    l hear it is a blast from the past. For me, this is just a marvel, for a lack of a better word.

    It seems it's ever flowing, the river just keeps going. Someday we'll run into the ocean wide. But till that day is here, we'll have another beer. Elbow to elbow, side by side. Some wouldn't say I golf. :) I'm not much of a fan myself these days. :)

    So cool to see an older poem of yours, especially one on this subject, which we can all relate to! You can even turn writer's block into amazing poetry - You rock!!

  1. Date: 3/27/2013 11:49:00 AM

    Hi Andrea: We can never fear about running out of ideas because we can always summon the muse with admonitions like these LOL.......I love this form- it is like a reflection in a pool...... a pool of endless ideas no doubt Love, SuZ

    love your philosophizing, and an oldie too, now i know where all that intelligence comes from... diamond poetry writer...

  1. Date: 3/27/2013 8:52:00 AM

    Andrea, I love EVERTHING about this poem! I have only been writing poetry for about a year and I often feel like I am running dry of ideas... but I think as poets, we were BORN to write. ;) Thank you for posting this oldie, I am adding it to my favorites.

  1. Date: 3/27/2013 8:17:00 AM

    I think we all feel like that at one time or another Andrea but then the pen seems to have a mind too,and that special poem is born. Brilliant writing ! xx Anne
