Rhyme my raison d’être

Sun streams through my window
blank pages waiting there
inspiration with this warming light
words gather here to share
and as invigorated poet I
seize pen and write away
plucking words to hone my craft
in my own special way
Rhyme my raison d'être
tells its story here once more
in this daily visitation 
of what the poet's in me for

Seven

7 of 7 in the ‘Seven Haikus 22 series’ from Jemverse

There's something about
writing a haiku each day
that always inspires

Of mornings and writers

In this still hour of darkness
before morning's begun
when the night time remains
with mere vestige of sun
you'd be forgiven for thinking
it just wouldn't come
and that darkness forever
would be the deal done
But if you did you would always
miss out on the fun
for this time of day
is a long way from glum

It's a time when the writer
finds words which just flow
when inspiration has tangible
substance you know
and the lines just appear
with the syntax to flow
to craft into stories
for poets to show
So one day you should visit
at daylight's first glow
as in your heart I am sure
you know it's where to go

Friday the third

No other reason
than Friday the third
for writing this verse
which might seem absurd
but then inspiration
will seldom conform
and will on occasion
stray from the norm
And this is the latter
with lines droll and witty
for Friday the third
and this little ditty

Inspiration III

For inspiration of a morning
looking out into the world
seen from my study window
before a new day is unfurled
there's mystery here as always
for I will never know
what will transpire from that point on
and what the day will show
but that won't stop me looking
at the start of each new day
for inspiration to the poet
and the words he has to say

In my room

In my room of a morning
when all around's still
and the world's waking up
and the birdsong is shrill
I can find inspiration
in the solitude here
to write words of wisdom
erudite and clear
and craft them to lines
to retain for a while
and maybe to publish
with the curl of a smile

For my room has that presence
for comfort of mind
a place I relax in
and often unwind
somewhere to play games
and to listen to sounds
from my music quite loudly
when no-one's around
And somewhere to write
crafting words as they come
til the syntax is ready
and the poem is done

New book, nice pen

I have a new book
to write poems in
It'll last me three months or so
as I scribble away
writing words by the day
to capture what life has to show

And I have a nice pen
which does well for me
so I ensure I have refills to spare
as although contribution
it's no substitution
to write with a pen with no care

For it's all about flow
and a passion for life
and the things that I see around me
so with each iteration
from that inspiration
my words when they're crafted set free

With inspiration III

I write because it’s part of me
because I want you all to see
and share this love and synergy
with inspiration here

I write because life simply is
and always has something to give
as all of us choose here to live
with inspiration here

I write because I know I should
as you would also if you could
to share that which is understood
with inspiration here

With inspiration II

We poets we are never short
of things to write about
for life is always talking
by a whisper or a shout

It always has a thing to say
if one has ears to listen
and capture something magical
to brighten and to glisten

We poets have this task you see
to bring that joy to you
as capturing a slice of life
is something that we do

With inspiration I

Poems daily, inspiration
there is always something there
the trick is spotting where it is
being constantly aware

And some days I will miss it
even though it’s in plain sight
the gift there to all poets
as they daily come to write

But mostly as you’ll see today
by some kind invitation
from a little slice of life
I’ve found my inspiration
