River of Rhyme

There has to be reason why I'm lifting up my pen.
The ink has started flowing and the words appear again.
The stanzas are evolving as I scribble every line.
My head is full of rhythm as the lines all start to rhyme.

I feel it's like my heartbeat, and it's never going to stop.
Or blood that's pulsing through my veins and hasn't time to clot.
Sometimes it flows much faster, but at times it seeps quite slow.
But like a living river I could never stem its flow.

It bears me on its current as it washes me along.
Oblivious to it's reason but captured by its song.
There is nothing can deter it, as it travels through my land.
Baptizing me with knowledge in a way I understand.

So I lift my pen and answer, all my feelings I explore,
allowing every sentence to come rushing in my door.
Until at last my writing has relieved the throbbing pain,
that makes me want to sit and write my poetry again.

Ivor G Davies

The moment created this second, is a moment that's going to last.
It lives the full spectrum of time, the future, the present and past.

What a enjoyable read with your rhyming so perfect along with the flow and a beautiful way to describe writing poetry just as if I had written this piece coming from my heart I just loved this poem.

Proof Reading!

Just noticed there is an 'a' missing in the first line!

Should be:
'There has to be a reason why I'm lifting up my pen.'

I am terrible at proof reading my own work....

Thanks for your apreciation of this, I have tried to explain the way my poetry develops and I seem to only get to read it after it is finished.

Ivor's muse.
Don't look a gift horse in the mouth Ivor...just be glad your muse has returned and is working at full speed again, without questioning why!

I for one am delighted that you are back among us full time...Would that I could say the same about mine!

(Is there a retirement home for muses I wonder...I think mine has given up the ghost!!)

Hello Ivor, just joined this site myself, loved the read, the River gave passage and led me to think, words are ok, if only to think, were all our word messages so easy to link, those of a muse, might relate to this ensync! So keep up the good works and spread with the world messages of passages found within!
