Origins

Like the tale Of the sun and the wind Coaxing the coat off a man Each poem inspires another The wind is the enforcer Using brute strength to get his way The sun is the persuader Soft and warm and winning The chicken or the egg? Oh that oh so old dispute If a tree falls in the forest Does it make a sound? Yes, if a poet ever heard the question While eating a chicken omelet. Where did Wolverine really come from? I'll probably watch the movie after I finish the comic Like Rose I believe in kindness. The tiger or the lady? Maybe both Seeking to be the creator of her own testaments To overcome her past She wishes to live a life of worship She walks her path With her heart open Influenced and inspired By the stories and questions of others.

I really like your language, the way you write stuff in a very simple, daily life manner, yet you combine it with great imagery and abstraction; indeed, inspiration comes from anything, even from boredom and nothingness (which is the paradise of every creative mind); thanks for the experience, and for the comments =D
