      The writer sits alone, watching,
        the words flow from his pen..
      He knows not why or how they came,
        or where, or even when..
      Sometimes the words come easy,
        in the twinkling of an eye..
      And other times he can't express,
        no matter how he tries....


      Inspiration might depend on
        timing or on need..
      A hunger gnawing deep within,
        a lust born out of greed..
      A few words are not quite enough
        to satisfy his soul..
      To write..and write..then write some more,
        are the writer's only goal....


      Those closest to him only think
        he wastes his time of day..
      But he is driven--thoughts unleash
        the words that he must say..
      He's told it's just a hobby,
        that it doesn't bring a dime..
      That few are paid for what they write,
        especially for rhyme....


      But he will reach beyond remarks,
        unfettered by disdain..
      The thirst that lies so deep within
        is never quenched by gain..
      Success depends on what is felt,
        by those who read his thoughts..
      To touch a soul with written word..
        To him, that can't be bought....


      So, in the early morning, long before
        the break of day..
      He sits alone, with pen in hand,
        and writes what he must say..
      The words are his addiction,
        a hunger he must feed..
      Unknown to him, within his words,
        he plants the writer's seed....


      Then at some other table, in some
        place along the way..
      Two young eyes read the writer's words,
        and all they have to say..
      He picks up pen and paper,
        and just before the dawn..
      He writes his first beginning work,
         ~~~Another writer spawned~~~

Thank you, Mark.....I think most of us get
    started by simple exposure...sometimes
       the seed just keeps growing!

Oh Sunny, what can I say. This simply blew me away. The words are so very true. I've had so many people ask me how I do it, write that is, and I never know what to tell them. Its just something I have to do, as I'm sure it is with all of us. It really was a pleasure reading this. Thanks for sharing it, Juls

Hi Juls.....
            I'm glad you liked this....I
            guess most of us have the same
            'addiction', and I'm really glad
            to find other folks who feel the
            same!      Thank you.....

Isnt this true! I think poetry is an addiction..

Hi Sunny,
This flows so beautiful, like a single rose just starting to open with the morning dew. You certainly write with much grace and I love to read what you write. A'hhhhhhhhh.
My vote for you, my friend.

          your work also! I think we all just
          feed each other, and that's great!\
