Where do poems come from?
I would really like to know.
I know that I don’t write classic poetry
it’s all a stream of consciousness
that I see in my head and then write.
It’s not at all pretty or well thought out
I’ve been known to use too many commas
and my grammar kind of sucks.
Sometimes, writing what I see
in the confines of my imagination
where there are no rules
and no boundaries
can be a bit messy and disorganized.
I can see classic purists of the art
cringing every time they read
some of what I write and say.
Sometimes I get a few likes,
even get a few nice comments
from what I post on my blog.
It means that something worked
for them who have liked.
I guess that’s what poetry is
something that reaches into another
that touches their heart
and sees the truth within.
