Why I write, is to be with you
Listening deeply, in true
Why I write, connecting heart
Loving presence, self-care part
Why I write, unravelling from within
Tangled threads, fibres unpinned
Why I write, just to walk in hand
With self, through inner land
Why I write, to hear my soul
Divine whispers immensely whole
Why I write, shedding the old
Canvas creation stories told
Why I write, to ignite
Relaxation mind too tight
Why I write, seeing self through
Open page, coloured new
Why I write, beyond black and white
Clarity, aligned full sight
Why I write, imagination in lore
Art in form, expressions born
Why I write, coming to a page
Honouring inner sacred sage
Why I write, capturing express
Full best and inner unrest
Why I write, love be told
Whole heart gratitude unfolds
Why I write, to empty nest
Sticks, stones, feathers and pests
Why I write, to hear the song
Inner voice, hearts courage, brave and strong
Why I write, dreams, hopes and wishes
Thoughts filled with sweet kisses
Why I write, to feel within
Hearts beating, underneath skin
Why I write, flowering bloom
Succulent scented, rose swoon
Why I write, to see me through
Moments of time unclear non rhythm
Why I write, from the heart
Being with you, love mark
Why I write, bowing in grace
Namaste to a blank page,
Time and Space.
Pen in hand…

Reading Denise Simmons’ poem “pen in hand” awakens me into a new horizon of imaginations. Love reading it again and again.
Jamua, thank you! Albert Einstein quote: “Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.”. Namaste.
