I sit and wonder what word
will be next on the page,
planning the sentence penned,
the connection succession.
What new plot will be developed
in the intricate story I write.
Each thought written or typed
a brush stroke of the mind,
painted as a picture enhancing tales
created only in my psyche.
Ideas although they may be similar
from writer to writer,
the hues differ, not to be plagiarized
from pureness of the scribe.
Pen and ink flow over the pages
to enthrall the reader.
All scribbled thoughts potential words
to permeate the pages of journals,
From Shakespeare, Ginsberg, Tennyson, King,
is a rare special occasion.
These writers of brilliance toiled,
as do all fellow authors to expand.
Expanding imaginations through written. . .word. . .

I have been writing poetry for 44 years. I began writing poetry when I was 15 years old and to this date I have written over 16,000 poems. I have had poems published in The San Fernando Journal, The Rag Mag, WYRD, The Cultural Reverence(e-magazine) and in Kiiroo(e-magazine), Mobius and the World Peace Anthology. I have over 1000 poems published in all. I also have a poetry page on Wix.com entitled anemotionaljourney.com. I also have written a Science Fiction/Fantasy novel entitled "The Blue Sphere" and I am currently working on three other books at the present time. The first is entitled "The Angel and the Witches, the second is "Once Upon A Halloween" and the third is "The Devil's Playground".
