Words written, well thought-out

expressions placed upon a blank sheet,

like an energetic artist selling canvas

upon a busy street; waiting to have a painting

bring a price; the poet is patient using time

wisely to write.  Writing, creating gave meaning

to the hunger days, rhymes read, know that

there was delight when someone reads the poems,

a poets appreciation.  Recognition of long days and

nights, living with hunger and fright, to write an

immortal poem remembered like an Angel’s song;

a poet’s aspiration before life is over, before life is

    Oh, such longing, such a great post about writing. To really write a lovely story, poem or book and really know you gave it your “all.” This would complete a writer’s dream, Elizabeth.
