Creative Poems: 26 / 500

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.

I agree with you completely. I write most of my poems in the silence of night. The whole of the night. When stars are shining brightly. It is the time for the birth of a poem. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Thank YOU, Mr. Bryan Norton! : -) Your comment means a lot to me. The longer a person is on this site, he begins to notice that all poets share some similarity in the way their brains are wired! : -)

What an insightful poem. Loved it and it's so true. Oftentimes I'm in bed for the evening and a line of poetry comes to mind and I have to jump up to write it down. Your poem trumpets what many poets experience. Great job.
