Scribble pad

Like a stream in flow
I let my thoughts pour
As I let my pen scribble
An outlet for my mind

Free, smooth, unperturbed
Like an orchestra in symphony
I bear witness
To a part of myself

Nature, values, emotions
Thoughts on kith and kin
Community, nation and world
All weave a web of words

A poem to lift the spirits
Or a story to inspire
An article to inform
Or humour to lighten the mood

No need for grandiloquence
Simple, easy and lucid
No one to impress
Only myself to please

I hope to offer something
In all these writings
Touch a few hearts
Or just to seek the truth

    This is well written and expressed…we often write for applause forgetting that writing is primarily for our pleasure.

    How wonderfully you write of why one writes! I pick up my pen each day and say, “What do You want to tell them today.” Then, opening to our Creator, I allow the words to flow through me as I believe you do, too. I like your poetry very much. hugs, pat

    I really enjoyed this poem and can relate to it too.
    Not everyone will understand a poet’s musings. The main thing is to write for one’s own enjoyment and not to please everyone else.

    Very nicely done! Thanks for sharing.

    First of all, it was a really nice poem… really really nice. Plus, since you write about the creation of a piece, may it be poem/story/article, you let people like us connect instantly with it.

    Absolutely wonderful – I think all us poets here can relate to it 🙂
