What's Your Inspiration?

How are you inspired?
Are you inspired by the sun?
Does it warm your skin from deep within?
Is it your number one?

Is it the pounding rain
that makes you want to write?
When you hear the plop of the first few drops
is it something you can't fight?

Or does it take a heartache?

Mary I never came across a poem asking an opinion on our personal reasons for our inspiration. but i see you got quite a responce.' I suppose mine is trying to let people know how i feel about the world, and really how i would like to see it.Perhaps I'm just a dreammer'

I agree with Anna. Plus I write because I am COMPLETELY loopy. my poem 'how I describe my poems' is partly discribe why I write, wonderful poets like you is the other part. liz

Sorrow is my true face, loneliness is my inspiration, I always fear that poetry will just vanish as I cry.

What a lovely thought provoking poem. It's the first one of yours I've read. As someone who just tries to write poetry for fun, you and others like you inspire me with the magical pictures you paint. To love and to be loved, happiness and sorrow all these things inspire me, Thank you for helping me, John

Mary, great question to end a great poem! My answer, if I had to choose one, would be heartache... and then I kind of branch out from there. Brian
