A comment for Donald

No poetry This saddens me to see How do we find in return Words from which to learn Shyness comes in many forms Like emotions and storms Write a verse You'll like it Great LIT Literature begins with a single letter How else will we get better?

That's the way I started, about forty years ago....one or two lines, and I felt wonderful...have been at it every since. Keep posting, Autumn, you'll get some attention before long. Love daver

Yes, Autumn, "Literature begins with a single letter." Whenever I have "writer's block," I just start putting stray thoughts on paper, word by word. Eventually, it leads in a surprising direction. Yours is a very astute observation about writing and inspiration!
