Inspiration Poem by Deborah Cromer


Rating: 4.5

What inspires one to act upon a thought
To bring forth creativity a moment once brought
Is it a scent, flavor, color or an emotion
Can the touch of a loved one tap into devotion

Does the heart play a role in remembering sound
Can the mind recall pictures of memories found
The past, the future and even today
All have parts to inspire in their own little way

What you see, what you want and hear
The smiles and laughter, even the fallen tear
All can create feelings to write down and share
Inherited from history, my rhyming is unique and rare

Why do a poem have to end cant the words go on why the road has a bend cant the poem grow on and on This one seems as wise as you I am really sure carries the content so truly true that the readers want more not everything I inherited comes from history there's a lot that cometh from your lovely poetry
