Readers often tell me they want to write a poem but don't know how to find inspiration. They have only to look around them. I have written poems about tables, chairs, even puddles. Recently someone challenged me to write about a light bulb.

I have coloured the cheeks of a child

at a birthday party

 

I have seen quarrels turn into beatings

and draw blood

 

I have watched over students yawning

for trying to concentrate

 

I have watched over meetings ringing

with raised voices

 

I have followed the progress of lovers

with delight

 

I am privy to secrets a journalist would

all but die for

 

I have been amused by such melodrama

as politicians love to stage

 

I have been moved by a significant few

brokering for peace

 

I become incensed by folks playing safe

for a quiet life

 

I despair of clerics reworking scriptures

to exonerate themselves

 

I empathise with poets transcending light

to justify darkness

 

yet, party as I am to the whole sorry mess,

at least I can switch off
