The Writer's Prayer

I like to think that poetry has intrinsic value above and beyond the actual craft… That the origins of poetry’s meter and rhyme precede each preliminary draft… That something, perhaps even spiritual, transcends the fore-and-aft… And when the writer thinks to scuttle a work, as often inherently we do, always may there be angels floating him a Literary-raft….

This is one of those poems that just seems to pertain to any of us. I enjoyed the subtle rhyme and the spiritual nature of the poem. Blessings. A Favorite Joe! Susan Maree

I like how you ponder poetry. I feel that when we write we are accessing a great reservoir of creativity. There are times that it feels like pieces write themselves and that I am merely an observer.

I know the feeling. When in spirit one feels omnipotent and connected to all. Thank you, Rick. Have a great day my friend!
