WHEN COMES A POEM

Where are the words so comforting, which take away all painful sting…no one knows how it comes to be, but when will a poem come to me ?

It could come in a song to sing, take away the worrying... lift the soul into the air, gentle breeze blow away all care.

As if on Angels wings I’d be, flying high and spirit free...a blessed change from just before, when dark was knocking on my door.

When comes a poem, when will it be ?

Cries are heard from deep inside and try though I might, oh, how I try...still nothing turns the key in lock to halt this torment of the clock.

Ah, poet...poor thing, sitting still...wondering, have I lost my skill to gather words and wrap them ‘round...make music yet hear not a sound...

Where is the Wizard, gone away...looking for him every day, yet nothing found nor felt inside. Has the poet gone and died ?

When comes a poem once again...comforting, takes away the pain. Don’t know just how it comes to be, but how I wish 'twould come to me. The words to bring in a song to sing...no more to be worrying, when the soul is lifted to the air, gentle breeze blowing away all care.

As if on Angel wings I’ll be, when comes a poem, again, to me...

AWWWW, What a heart felt poem, you have shared here with us, Linda.
It does seem at times that our muse goes on vacation for a while. It makes me
uncomfortable when mine does that. I can relate to what you are saying here, girl.

Dear Linda.,
It does to me to seem also that I tend to try and find something in my head to write about, Then I all of a sudden lost what I was going to write about.
But then all of a sudden it comes back to me.
I have the same problem at times to my friend Linda.
But I really love the way you put this write my friend.
I also just love this write of yours Linda. :)

Well, I've been down that road before Lindy, and more than once. But this poem is an excellent start dear one. Your poetry is most always very beautiful and meaningful. What I do, and if I want to take the time, if I even care that I want to write a new one, is I re-read some of my old ones, and give Nethugs a visit and read what others have written, well, at least those who send me a link, as I am getting lazy in my older age. Catcha later me friend, it will come. GLYASDI
Live today as if it were your last, for tomorrow it will be your past, but live it with peace in mind, joy to find, and for God divine!

AW, GOSH, STEVE....WHAT NICE THINGS YOU HAVE SAID HERE ABOUT MY WRITING. THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH !! :D YOUR ADVICE IS VERY SOUND AND I WILL BE USING YOUR TIPS, FOR SURE. AGAIN, THANK YOU !!! :D LOOKS LIKE I'VE GOT SOME BACK READING TO DO...AND I HAVE A HUGE BUNCH OF POEMS IN A FILE ON PHOTOBUCKET. REMEMBER MY POETRY PAGES ? I STOPPED DOING THAT BECAUSE I MOVED ONE OF THEM BACK SOME TIME AGO AND IT THREW THE WHOLE KABOSH OUT OF WHACK. SO MANY OF THEM DISAPPEARED FROM HUGS AND I HAD TO GO BACK AND PUT THEM IN AGAIN. TOOK A LONG TIME, STILL NOT DONE. SO, NOW I JUST DO A GRAPHIC WITH THE TEXT PASTED UNDERNEATH IT.

SO, WITH YOUR GOOD ADVICE, AND A FILE TO DIVE INTO...OFF I GO ~!!!~

LOVE ALWAYS, LINDY !!! :D :lol: :wink:
