Pray for me--having one of those days.
The frozen tundra
has been scoured by
lack of interest
in the Poet's words -
Blizzards of reviews
that once filled the sky
fall less often now -
The Northern Lights arc
in reluctant show -
refusing to shine
as bright as before -
The landscape has changed -
glaciers are melting
at a record pace -
along with her words -
The Poet questions
her abilities -
calves into the sea -
She struggles to write
but it is harder
when the desire
is no longer there -
It is a hard life
being a Poet -
trying to survive
on talent alone -

Don't EVER doubt your talents as a writer; you have achieved so much in the time since you joined AD, and I have been honored to witness your growth as a writer and poet! I love how you write, and I only wish I could write half as well as you do! Don't ever doubt your talents, and don't be so hard on yourself! Let the Lord help; He helps me! Without Him, I couldn't do it; maybe you need to lean on Him and ask for His help! Don't ever be afraid to ask Him for help!! Very well done; brava!!
(((HUGS))) and much love, your twin, Karen Lynn. :( >tears <

I don't think there is any lack of interest in your words. I always look forward to reading what you write. In the words of John Denver "Some days are diamond, some days are stone". Take care and be well.

|Reviewed by Ed Matlack
|What "talent alone?" You have scads more talent than half the poets I know, then again, they have their own type of talent too...we all have something...finding out what it is, that is the problem...ED|

|I empathize with the way you feel since I have been there so many times. Do not give in to such sentiments, Karla. We must go on. Take care. Amour et paix. Ton ami de la CB, Canada. Régis|

|as hard as it is to be a "poet" in this world, it's harder just to be human.
|Reviewed by Sandie Angel
|Huh?...are you talking about me? Hhhhhmmmmm...it couldn't be about you, for you are never lack of words.
Your writing is always so good and so real and heartfelt. I'm soooo guilty that I have not been up to writing anything. I get distracted very easily especially now I have new stress at work and I have to think about it in the evening when I get home. That is why under such circumstances that sometimes it is difficult for me to be inspired.
Karla, I hope you are not like me. You are well-liked in the den. There are so many in the den who look foward to reading you everyday.
((((( Love and Hugs to you )))))

|It is hard being a poet in this world, which seems a wasteland. However, I almost always read your poems even when I am too pressed for time to comment on everybody's AND your poems are absolutely inspiring and point me always back to those shining northern lights. Don't lose heart, Karla. And you are in my prayers tonight. We all just have to hold each other up now and then, right? Dawn|

|Karla dear...listen to Jerry, Eileen, and now your friend Michelle. Knock it off! You have no idea now many people read our work...and how much good we are able to do by reaching one person at a time. Your talent was placed there for a reason. Continue to use it, allow it to be guided by God for His greater purpose. When I post something that I'm passionate about, I pray before I do it. If even one person is helped by reading what I write then I consider the effort a success and give Him the glory. And I don't think that success is measured by chapbooks, magazine printings etc. In the long run, our success is measured by a much higher standard...how did we use our talents to benefit those around us? You're doing the right thing dear. Keep doing it. I'm reading, and I know others are too. Much love, Michelle|
|Reviewed by E T Waldron
|Karla this is an excellent poem on the topic. However, I agree with Jerry! You have to stop looking for perfection which is attributed to God only.;-) There comes a time when the poet must go within and forget what others may think, but keep writing until you are out of the doldrums.You're in my prayers!
