Poets That I Know

Poets That I Know

poets
In Montana thinking about writing and poets

Are we not but one ,
us writers .
Do we ever go anywhere or  do anything
that we are not paying our way
by the pen ?
That we are not borrowing our moments
from the pages of time,
today as you reach down to
touch the colors of  flowers
in the bed outside
your door .
Or as you take the wheel and stare through
a windshield
passing fields and flora
through a forest glen.
Know that you are never alone
never lonely.
We are right there beside you
the pen
the paper
the reader.

Sometime in my life, I started to write about my life journey, in poetry, in story perhaps to sort them out and enter them into a place of safekeeping. The soul of the writer is perhaps best described in their words, emotions and thoughts. If these poems or stories touch something inside you then maybe I have succeeded in sharing. I will not write about my self in profile, because self isn't so important in writing. Only the journey in words and the sharing are important. Why would weever say " Now about me !"........I'd rather write about life, nature, serenity ........

    How true my friend, life is full of inspiration for our creative pens. There isn’t a day that goes by that doesn’t move or stir my soul. The slightest thing, emotions rise and creativity begins. I am so happy to be associated with friends who understand a poet’s journey, each and every day is but an adventure in study and expression. Thank you for being a friend Ed.

    We most surely are as one, us writers. Being a writer opens up the whole world and beyond to us. This is a wonderful poem, Ed.

    So true Ed, we do have a different take on life, every experience, every moment simply fodder for the pen. I guess that’s why we all so relate to one another, as we are kindred spirits on a journey that is both difficult yet filled with beauty. A fine rendering my friend.
