It begins


a whisper upon a breeze


gently wafting through an open door


brushing up against thought


turning it sideways


a gift through cracks unseen


a valley of promise


rooted in the subconscious


a keyboard my only plow

      Wow, that last line is incredible, with beautifully poetic words leaving up to it. Are you writing a poem a day in April for National Poetry Month? My poetry seemed to dry up a while back. I wish I could get it going again! :-)

      Oh, I do understand. I hear this same whisper when my wife sits down to play. There's nothing like writing or painting while someone in the background in softly playing a classical piece.

      I plow that field as well, but mine is not so eloquent. ;)
