The Poet's Way
When I put pen to paper
To write in free verse or rhyme,
What I create is according to mood
The feelings I have at the time.
When I'm in tune with my inner self
I write from the level of soul.
Outpourings are deeply spiritual
For Divine Love writes the scroll.
Sometimes I'm philosophical.
Understanding wish to share,
So I open my mind to wisdom's touch
Let her take over from there.
If I'm feeling playful
Then a sense of humour I use,
To create some joy and laughter
Young and old alike to amuse.
I might just want to share feelings,
So with the gift of empathy
I try to reach other's hearts and minds,
So to set their feelings free.
I also take from what I see in life
Nature's beauty spread all around.
And so portray with expressive words
To capture every sight and sound.
I am like the artist
That paints on canvas for all to see.
My pen is my brush, words my colours
And feelings do the artwork for me.
