Let it flow

The ancient eavesdropper

Warm air
flows thru
my window —
brushing
against my
cheek —
a zephyr
playing tag —
I’m always it.

The
wind
whispers
in my ear —
revealing
distant
secrets —
faraway
sounds
draw me
nearer.

Beside
a gurgling
stream —
lost in
thought —
reflecting
on riffles —
carried
off to the
ocean.

What
minuscule
forces
converge
to erode
earth —
moulding
mountains
& river
bottoms —
nothing
immune to
the slightest
molecule.

The
churning
sensation
that sticks
in your
veins —
the
beating
of a fist
inside
your
chest —
feeling
every
hit &
miss.

I cannot
read your
mind —
you are
not an
open
book —
your
thoughts
are lost
high up
on a shelf.

Fear not
my dear
creative
souls —
for inspiration
has no
expiration —
when
the urge
to write
takes hold —
let it flow.

    I am still learning about poetry. Can anyone explain how to make the line works.

    I like the poetry, it motivates me somehow 😊

    This is nice. Thank you. When writer’s block hits, I will come back to this lovely poem and know that inspiration has no expiration, and when it breaks….let it flow.

    all I can say is WOW!!

  5. Sometimes waiting to write lets the ideas continue to morph and grow so that when finally they do flow ( and they always do, eventually) the writing has more depth and substance. I like letting the words play with themselves for a while before i begin capturing them and pasting them onto the paper in neat little patterns….

  6. I like this poem. 🙂
