"Poetry is the rhythmic creation of beauty in words" Edgar Allan Poe

Poetic inspiration
Often occurs 
Early in the morning
Tired eyes flutter open
Recalling my thoughts can be challenging
Yawning, I pick up my pen and write

Jan, congratulations on your win in my writing challenge with this perfect Acrostic poem, I also write early in the morning as my mind seems so open and full of ideas (but guilty of also writing at night) Well Done !

I love the simplicity of your write Jan, yet its content and message are awesome, short, wonderful and definitely describes how you, and lot of us on poetry soup record our thoughts. I also get up early and come straight to my computer - early morning thoughts are the best Hugs, Jennifer.

Your acrostic tells of a way that works, indeed...and cleverly validates the concept stated in the old bit of wisdom: a poet/writer is a person who writes....and the more recent advertising instruction: just do it! Well done.

Oh so sweet, and makes me feel like a "Longfellow" moment. Lovely. However it is hot coffee for me, or tea for three, if the dogs and kittens come for scones. Lovely poem my friend... I enjoyed it very much. Ann
