To Write a Poem

To Write a Poem

I take my place
I am prepared
And yet the mind remains blank
How long will it take?
To capture a thought
A thought that will take flight
Like the butterfly
That dips and weaves
And lands so perfectly

Will the doors open
Let the light stream in
With the softness of a kitten
The strength of the bull
Something insightful
Something wise 
Something true
Something only, I can say

There are those things that only we can say. This poem resonates with me as well as all poets...we wait for the inspiration to capture one moment that moves us, lifts us, challenges us.

I love the line "something only I can say." That is what keeps us coming back to the keyboard, I think. I loved this, Annell.
