I guess it is I write?
A line or two in day or night
Inside out side all day long
The words stick with me
Like an unending song
They always's seem to fill my mind
Them old words don't pass with time
Even when I'm dead asleep
I dream of words that I repeat
Ideas they form as I read along
Or sometimes as I hear a song
A bird can fly and words the come
A spider crushed will bring them on
In rhyme, in sonnet, in every form
Is this how a poem is born?
So yes, I guess it is I write
If pen in hand can make you think
Then I have not wasted ink

This is great! So true about inspiration,
it comes along in a most unique form...
"a spider crushed"...too cute!

Thank you thursdayschild
It was a question posed to me at a workshop..
Crushed spiders are the only kind I like. :-)
