Gratitude breaks the spell of Writers Block
Kamál (Perfection), 13 Bahá (Splendor) 175 B.E. - Monday, April 2, 2018
the quotes of other poets
in my search of meaning?
Or a reason to write?
I need no reason to write because,
even in my dreams,
stanzas and lines,
metaphors and similes
come unbidden into my mind.
Some of the quotes
resonant in my soul:
such as Geoffrey Nash's implication
that poets compose the conscience of humanity.
Now I ask myself,
"What does it mean to be the conscience of humanity?"
"Why do I write poetry?"
"Who do I write for?"
One question I can answer,
but the other two will have to wait
until my soul and body separate,
and my soul ascends into the spiritual realm.
is a gift from the Holy Spirit:
I write for the Glory of God.
