Inspiration - Poem by Emma Kessler

It calls with noiseless words
It creates a stringless knot
That binds together poet and pen

It's words cannot be ignored
It's knot cannot be untied
When it is present poet and pen must unite and create

It cannot be called upon
It had it's own mind
Only working when it wants to
Sometimes appearing in the most inconvenient of times
Almost never when wanted

But without it
There would be no great poetry
No wonderful stories told in books
No beautiful music

So to you, stubborn, ill timed and unignorable thing
I say, thank you

    This is all so true, oftentimes a poet needs and inspiration in order to begin, or continue a poem, but sometimes, the inspiration is the poem in and of itself, sometimes the inspiration is always there, hidden in plain sight, and you are blind to it until it hits you full in the face. Your poem touched me, thank you. Your fellow poet, Taylor. (Report) Reply

    Emma, I love this poem. It describes myself, as there are times when I need Inspiration to continue. You drew me right into the poem and I felt the lows and the highs of writing poetry. A great job, Your friend in poetry. Lynn (Report) Reply
