Vacancy for Poems

Written by: Carolyn Devonshire

Inspiration is stymied by these walls
Deeper into a depression she falls

All she needs to do is go outside
And on a unicorn she will glide

The splendor below is God’s great gift
And it feels so free to be adrift

Meadow flowers shine in rainbow hues
A lazy dog is taking a snooze

Emerald forests make her smile
Something she hasn’t done for a while

Puffy clouds above release her muse
Imagination does transfuse

The “no vacancy” sign is gone
God’s gifts give impetus to write on
