Regardless of what type of creative outlet an individual is blessed with, when shared with others it is a priceless gift...

It's amazing when you stop, take time to think
what makes writer's and artist's continually tick
words and images flood their receptive minds
sleep is so often elusive, it gets lost in time
as soulful words and images possess their thoughts
flood gates can barely contain what can't be bought


Some days their brains get clogged with grime
needing liquid plummer to release the rhymes
eyes get cloudy, curtains are drawn shut
in need of sunny days for visions to spawn
days and nights consumed with depression
emotional roller coasters spur their passions


Paints and brushes, verbs and nouns
creative tools that must be kept around
fragile, delicate, strong and wise
writer's and artists will muse and survive
horror, history, romantic trysts, humor, compassion
raw talent, educated scholars, all refined gifts


Thankful am I to the wise powers that be
they created a home for you and me
from every continent whether far or near
we have a place to share with our peers
though we may not always see eye to eye
friendships made bring happiness and smiles


Reviews and comments make many a day
some teach, some console, some confuse, that's O.K.
we laugh, we cry, we vent , and then play
a family we are and a family we will stay
so share your muses do color our world
bestow your gifts share with the world.


 


 


I personally appreciate each and everyone of you, AD has been a healing haven for me.  I wish everyone happiness and continued success, may your wells never run dry!

What would we do without this gift of writing? Excellent poem.

A strange breed we are to most, but happy, I dare say. There is no greater gift than the creative mind. And weird as I may seem to the 'normal' world, I thank God for it every day. Thank you for this, Zenith.

This is terrific!! I loved every word. I think artists and poets are special because they see and feel much more sensually than most. A unique and beautiful gift to have.

I like the one about Liquid Plumber. I've tried that, too. Sometimes, when I was just getting unclogged, the whole pool of thought turned into a slough.
Reviewed by Ron (sketchman) Axelson
Wow, what honest, soulful, expression you've written here.
Poets and artist must share regardless of any dollar amount.
Sharing is what it's all about?
HAVE A GREAT DAY SWEET LADY............Ron
