Inspiration - Poem by Deborah Cromer

What inspires one to act upon a thought
To bring forth creativity a moment once brought
Is it a scent, flavor, color or an emotion
Can the touch of a loved one tap into devotion

Does the heart play a role in remembering sound
Can the mind recall pictures of memories found
The past, the future and even today
All have parts to inspire in their own little way

What you see, what you want and hear
The smiles and laughter, even the fallen tear
All can create feelings to write down and share
Inherited from history, my rhyming is rare

    Nice! I tend to rhyme more often than not, but it seems my words can touch others without the rhyme. (and it's much harder too!) Good write!

    Why do a poem have to end
    cant the words go on
    why the road has a bend
    cant the poem grow on and on

    This one seems as wise as you
    I am really sure
    carries the content so truly true
    that the readers want more

    not everything I inherited
    comes from history
    there's a lot that cometh
    from your lovely poetry (Report) Reply
