2008: My Writing

Somtimes I need to write
At 3 AM
When the house is
Dark and quiet

But the LEDs
Me work

Often I need music
Sometimes my mixes
Then a single artist's CD
Or random automated all-night FM radio

There are times
My writing needs a boost
From Starbucks or Peets
Soft music and socialization

I am inspired too
By the shouts of children
Fighting over who got
The best toy with their Happy Meal

I live in this world
I draw from this world
What I write I write
About this world and others

    you paint pictures
    with your words
    about the world around you...
    just as I.

    I think we
    may be

    Thanks for the read
    and the art...

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

It is the hour when from the boughs
The nightingale's high note is heard;
It is the hour -- when lover's vows
Seem sweet in every whisper'd word;
And gentle winds and waters near,
