Awakening to the call.

A morning consumed by beauteous words

How could he not be inspired to write poetry

Wellness music from the heart

The written word makes a fine statement.


The ways of the poet are many

Steering away from violence and aggression

There are of course times when

Radical changes must be made?


Listen to what the poetic voice is saying

Is it worth portraying at this time?

Should he choose a different route

Once called into action?


He must obey the Muse

Write, then hone


Once satisfied

Give his poem wings.

He has given of his best.


Hopefully, a reader somewhere at some point

Will be consumed by his beauteous words.
