Poet

pen-1743189_960_720

Pure imagination

seeps from his mind.

Thoughts and words

flowing overtime.

 

Brilliant writings

in every shape and form.

All meant to bless,

comfort, and warm.

It’s hard to imagine a person, who lacks an imagination. ~M

I Write Because…

book-863418_640

I Write Because…

I write to…
Explore hidden realms beyond my reach

I write to…
See the universe in a different light

I write to…
Free myself from the confines of this world

I write to…
Hear my imagination think

I write to…
Escape to other dimensions in time

I write to…
Empower my introverted side

I write to…
Give my soul a much needed rest

I write to…
Pretend that I am someone I’m not

I write to…
Become a happier self

I write to…
Share my innermost thoughts and emotions

I write to…
Give hope to the hopeless

I write to…
Allow myself a few moments of weakness

I write to…
Make people laugh and cry

I write to…
Challenge myself in numerous ways

I write to…
Reach out to the brokenhearted

I write to…
Be daring and free from the chains that imprison me

I write to…
Create stories that I can call my very own

I write to…
Bring creativity into existence

I write to…
Have adventures that would otherwise never take place

I write to…
Acknowledge all that is good and true

I write to…
Perfect my hidden talents and abilities

I write to…
Show myself that I am worth so much more than I think that I am

I write to…
Find comfort in a place that I didn’t even know existed

I write because…
I am a writer.

Words of every flavor…

Ravishing

Regal red

Lines the top

Of my paper

And there’s a puncture mark

In the upper corner

Left by an unconventional

Looking stapler

 

Brilliant

Colors of blue

Line the simple

Neatly spaced rows

Patiently awaiting

The pen

To show off

All it knows

 

Plain

Pearly white

Leaves much

To the imagination

As a blank sheet

Of paper

Begs to be filled

With inspiration

 

Inky

Black blots

Are haphazardly

Scattered throughout

Leaving

A random pattern

For someone

To figure out

 

A rainbow

Of colors

Floods the tip

Of the pen

Capturing

The essence

Of the writer

From within

 

Greens

Turn to golds

As the seasons

Change

And pinks

Turn to purple

Along

The dusty plains

 

Then there’s

The roses

Which are almost

Always red

And the violets

Normally blue

Changed to purple

Now instead

 

Because as the writer

Scribbles

He is likely to change

His point of view

And during the process

Of writing

He may often change

To a different hue

 

Words

Of every flavor

Now fill

The voided space

A brilliant

Beautiful story

Which can never

Be erased

Her Fortress of Solitude

expressive_110411_1410x930

Plagued by daily thoughts

Of disorganized whimsy

She’s forced to relegate to a chair

That’s tattered and flimsy

 

Shoved into her hand

Is a warm cup of black tea

In the other hand a pen

And a notebook on her knee

 

Sipping the day away

With an intense look of determination

Sometimes random smiles appear

Others times grimaces of frustration

 

Secretly she knows

The story which she’s telling

She only hopes that others

Will one day find it compelling

 

Carried far away

By all of her imaginative thoughts

She fervently scribbles down words

Ever assessing the plot

 

Biting her lower lip

She stares out the window

Very carefully considering

Who will be her hero

 

Time ticks away

And she’s oblivious to the passing hours

All she can think of

Is who she’ll entrust with superpowers

 

Every decision must be impeccable

And scrupulously thought out

She’s knows there cannot be

Even the slightest bit of doubt

My husband calls my writing chair, my “Fortress of solitude.”  And so this poem was born, with that thought in mind.

The Daily Post/Daily Prompt – Solitude

Storytelling

the_book_of_secrets_by_shayn_art-d4bmy3j

Whimsical spirited intriguing thoughts
Gather momentum in the mind
Creating intense perplexing images
Which resonate most often with the unconfined

Magical meetings and creative greetings
Are at the mercy of the innovative author
Simple pleasures are aligned with the fulfillment of treasures
Sometimes creating passion and overwhelming desire

Sparks often fly and worlds have been known to pass by
All in an attempt to bring unhindered amusement
Even the simplest of words can bring about expectations
Leaving the reader caught up in vigilant anticipation

Hearts are often warmed and then unexpectedly left abandoned
While the writer revels in determining the outcome of the plot
Capturing the essence of the story can be an arduous task
A gratifying fantasy is usually unpredictable and often unsurpassed

Calling All Book Nerds

Anyone interested in doing Larps – Live Action Role Play?  Here’s a link to one that is going on in Poland.  This would be the ultimate experience for a true Harry Potter fan, even though the event is not affiliated with J.K. Rowling, Scholastic Books, Bloomsbury Publishing, or Warner Bros.  This looks like it could be more fun than going to Universal Studios.  For more information and to sign up for updates, go here.
