What Influences Me To Write?

What Influences Me To Write?

Those who know me personally
or from site to site
Ask the question I have asked
myself over these 20 years

What influences me to write and
what inspires me the most?
I’m sure you’ve asked yourself
these same questions too

I cannot speak for you, but I
can try to answer for me
I am influenced by everything
around me, by sight and sound

By scent, by thought, from past
memories and tomorrow’s dreams
By the magic felt when two lover’s
kiss, the look in their eyes

By the poetry written by other’s
that drench me with emotion
Like a lightening bolt hitting my
soul, at what they captured

Bringing to my knees as tears
flow from my eyes
I am intoxicated by life and all
the experiences immersed in

Just like you, If I am lucky I will
capture them within my lines
Giving you, the reader a glimpse
into what makes up my soul
