The Good Poets Come Out At Night

Rating: 5.0

There must be something
In the moon's soft glow
That causes our
Creative juices to flow.

Or maybe the stars
Are the inspiration
For poetry that gets us
A standing ovation.

Perhaps it's the slower pace
When evening winds down
And you can hear your thoughts
Where quiet is found

The poems pour onto paper
When the day turns to night
And writing's almost effortless,
The best way to write.

The poets here on Poem Hunter were the inspiration for this poem!
Was on the site late one night, and there were some really good new poems showing up!

Wonderful observation but yet another good reason - less critics late at night to see ones mistakes.

The Muse dictates, and we merely transcribe... Always be ready- - Keep a notepad and pen or pencil by your bedside if necessary! Thank you, Lorraine Margueritte! Love your feedback! (I suffer from insomnia, too...)

Beautifully written poem it flows so effortlessly. Uplifting and restful. I can feel the deep stillness underlying the words. I agree with you somehow the mystery of night inspires me but it's usually more towards morning when the poem starts to take shape.Thank you poetess full marks

An amazing write! The stillness of night gives us the space to contemplate, moonlight and stars give inspiration to spill our thoughts on paper.
