Seeking Inspiration

Start of Autumn 020

On and on through time

the mighty pen has served him well

creating poetic words

that steal the heart away

there never was a time

that there was no rhyme

and eagerly he worked

as the pen flashed

to get all of his emotions

laid out for the world to see

it was one day

that suddenly the poet had nothing to say

his muses remained silent

and he wanted to cry

but rather than lay down and die

he cast his pen aside

went walking down the road

to seek that which would inspire

he heard the muses whispering in his ears

of the clouds and the sky

the coming of the spring

and the flowers by the roadside

as the day turned to afternoon

and the shadows grew long

the poet returned to paper and pen

soon he had a poem

that sung of nature

and things that filled the soul

once done he was satisfied

as the muses nodded and smiled

  1. I wrote a poem about Inspiration a few days ago. Someday I hope to create and put beautiful words together the way you do. I like your poem much better. Thanks.
