A PASSION FOR WRITING
Written for Jack Horne's Contest---"Comments"
A Passion for Writing
A comment that really lifted me up was from a writer in Florida
She was a writer from a newspaper
She said, “You’ve got the makings to be a good writer one day!”
She even signed her comment “love”
I was so energized by this professional writer’s comment that it made me dig
deeper within my heart
I wanted to write poetry that had meaning
I wanted to write poetry that explained something unique about me and how I
understood the world to be
Her simple comment changed the way I felt about my ink pen
It also stirred a new passion within me
She is a novelist and she is a well- known writer around these waters
We have even written a few pieces together
I will keep her name secret (since Jack requests this)
But she knows who she is and has even invited me sky-diving
I have the most special place in my heart for her
And one day we will jump out of an airplane together
She is my Devonshire! (oops! was that a clue, Jack?)
So here is my entry for your quaint little contest, Jack
I hope that it is received well
For whenever I write I try to write something uplifting
And whenever I comment I try to "write" unto others as I would have them
“write” unto me!
Always your friend across the pond!
My humble lil entry for your contest!
