May I have a drink of your wine?

Empty of thoughts

I walk into a bookstore

and begin flipping

through books

letting other

poets’ words nourish

the thirst

within me.

I drink freely

from each poet’s


of tasty wine.

Creativity begins flowing

and once again

I begin writing

and become

a poet.

As a teen, wanted to live from writing poetry. Wrote several books, selling nationally. Hung out with readers throughout the United States. My writing has been on back burner. Now dusting off my desk and have my pen in hand. Hope you enjoy some of what I write.
