    A poem written each day,

    Revealing you can say, What has crossed your mind, Helped your passions to unwind, Kept you awake at night With the thoughts of a delight, Dreams in the hanging tree: You sample so many experiences of life On that journey to become someone 's wife.

    Fickle Muse?

    I write poetry when I'm inspired But when will she come Soon is what she always says But I'm left alone to ponder And tear up my dreams Sometimes I'm afraid the she"s too beautiful to be with someone as ugly as me.

    Inspiration Flows

    Sometimes I just get this overwhelming desire to express my feelings, and a poem (or a story) is born.  The words come flowing from my heart, out through my fingertips and dance across my keyboard.  It hits me out of nowhere, and I grab a pen and some paper or log...
