In some shape or form the ideas for his poems
Come from the ups and downs of life in all it various forms
Drinking in the beauty of nature
Losing himself in a vast library of books
Being a news junkie has its benefits
Leaving his ink splash on a page, satisfies
What is the point in poetry he asks himself frequently?
Self-gratification, getting something off his chest?
Some poems can confuse and irritate
Still they must be completed
We can learn a lot from poems?
Once he has lost all interest in the poem he’s writing
Then it is finished.
