I Write Poetry

I play with words, but I’m not sure why I write poetry. One day I just felt the need to try! I write poetry! It fills my heart with such delight. Oh, could I ever stop? Can you keep the sparrow from the sky? I write poetry. With pen in hand, I wait to hear the whispers of my muse. Soon enough, the verses multiply! I write poetry. At times the words come over-flowing; but sometimes a phrase flits as if it were a butterfly. I write poetry. I strive to capture flutter-words! They are so beautiful. Amazed am I when I can’t deny I write poetry! I’ll see a sunset, taste first snow, or smell a ruby rose. Mother Nature I must glorify; I write poetry. A poetess I call for myself as one who loves sweet rhythm. God willing, may I say till I die - I write poetry. For Julie Rodeheaver's 'What inspires you to write poetry' Poetry Contest Contest

I love your reference to your pen name Sonneteer Andrea in your last two lines. I couldn't attempt this form. It seemed just too difficult. Kudos for your win with this excellent example of the form! # 7 : )

So thankful that you do write poetry. I find your rhymes a delight, your clever take on politics or on life, your great way that you write about nature, so inspiring.

This was just delightful, Andrea. Spritely images, and relate-able verse ... I love how you took to heart the concept of using your refrains in different ways, most of the time as its own statement, and sometimes apart of the line preceding it. "God willing, may I say till I die - I write poetry." I hope the same thing. Excellent ghazal.
