Opportune Moment - Poem by David Harris

Never ask me why I became a writer
because I couldn’t tell you why.
I just pick up a pen
and the words just flow again
off the top of my head.
I never planned to become a writer,
it just happened.
One day I picked up a pen
to doodle a bit
and the words came streaming out.
Now after over forty years
the words keep coming out.
I have no problem with that,
though there is times I wish
they’d pick a more opportune moment
when they are about to arrive.

    I think it's the things that shape our lives, that make us pick up the pen to write.. Andy 10 (Report) Reply

    One great place is when one is 'ensconced on the throne', so to speak. Ha! Also in the middle of the night. When one actually has the time and silence to think, nothing seems to happen. Funny life.
    Loved this one.
    Love and hugs Ernestine XXX
