My Writing Is More Than Words

As writers, we all use words as building blocks
Put together in sentences

My writing is more than just words
The words come from my heart
The writing comes from love
So much more than just words

When I hear the sounds of the night
The wind through the trees
The laughter of my grandsons
I start putting them to words

Words that describe how they make me feel
About love and life
Good times and bad
I write what I feel

Anyone can put words on paper
But can anyone create images with those words?
Memories in your own mind?

I write from almost 74 years of life
Ups and downs
Around and around
My words are my life

When you sit down to write
Let your mind fly free
Let the memories caress you
Like mine have with me

So open your mind
Let your fantasies unwind
They are more than mere words
If you just take the time

Whether your thoughts or mine
We’re all much the same
So write down your words
And your memory will remain

My Perfect Poison

Late nights, early mornings

Here I go again

You’re my perfect poison

You’re in my blood

I can’t quit

You’ve become my favorite drug

One more time could be my death

And I don’t even care

You draw me in like it’s a sin

I don’t care what people say

It never mattered anyway

I come to you to keep the wolves away

You’re my perfect poison

Soulana, Sister Land To Everdream

It’s a magical place that I visit
As I sit alone in the dark
A place of mystery and night songs
Where I go to quiet my heart

It’s doesn’t matter if I write
For that’s not why I’ve come
Soulana is my quiet place
To visit when day is done

But the music of Soulana fills my soul
And poems start to form
My heart tells me what to write
As words escape my pen

The words start flowing faster now
Words of love and words of life
Inspiration comes in wave after wave
Tsunamis of words that I need to write

Find your Soulana and go there tonight
The words will come and you’ll start to write
Feel the magic of Soulana flow through your pen
It will make you believe in your writing again

A Life Worth Living

I was taught at an early age
To live a life of kindness
Compassion… Caring…
A life of value and worth

I’m a Preacher’s kid
Brought up in the church
My Dad was a writer of God’s words
The best speaker I have ever heard

I learned my prayer before bed:
Now I lay me down to sleep
I pray the Lord my soul to keep
If I should die before I wake
I pray the Lord my soul to take

I learned my prayer before a meal:
God is Great and God is Good
And we thank Him for our food
By His Goodness all are fed
Give us Lord our daily bread

The foundations set in my early years
Have guided my through my life
I’ve made mistakes like humans do
Mistakes that have made me stronger and wiser

My life has not been all peaches and cream
But I’ve done what I could and offered my hand
I’ve always helped others along the way
And have never regretted the path I have taken

I think my Dad and Mom would be proud
Of the son they raised and the man I’ve become
I am who I am because of their love
And hope that I’ve lived a life worth living

A Writer’s Confession

Have you ever wondered why you write?
Is it for me or is it for you?
Am I writing for the right reasons?
And what are the “right reasons”?

Do I write to get likes?
Comments? Followers?
Or do I write because the words inside me
Simply need to be put on paper?

I write to fill a need in myself and a need in you
A need to release feelings trapped inside
A need for self expression
A need to create a written record of my life

I write to express love, beauty, the wonders of life
I follow no rules, I just write what I feel
I write to create images in your mind
To make you feel what you read

I am a creator
Therefore I write

The Light Of Love

The light of love
Shines upon us
Keeping us close
Keeping us together

The light of love
Surrounds us
And we are at peace
Once again

Find the light
Embrace it as your own
And let it fill you with love

Walk With Me

Walk with me
Through the images created in my mind
Help me choose the words
That may or may not rhyme

Feel the pain that has become
My reality
Walk with me
Help the words come more easily

Walk with me
Whisper words of passion in my ear
Tell me that writing
Is why I am here

So many things
That I’m trying to say
So many fears
That get in the way

The world of a writer
Can be lonely and cold
But it also can be
A world to behold

The words that I write
Aren’t phony, they’re real
So walk with me now
And feel what I feel
