Words that Inspire


Words that inspire come easy at first
bubble over like a bottle of cheap champagne;
phrases that mean nothing
on the surface
suddenly voice themselves
and make their presence known -
their presence with their sticky truth
alter what you think is possible. Exotic.
Innocuous words inspire if the time is right
their sparks touching the joy-light within;
the feel of dreams touching earth
is like nothing words can describe
even though they try
and the soul rejoices as heaviness lifts and
lightness descends
infusing the atmosphere
with inspiration.

 This is a poem I wrote after thinking about inspiration, goals and dreams. I have read so many books on those very topics and love many quotes about them as well.  Do you have a favorite quote, saying or book on motivation ,inspiration, dreams? How do you stay inspired?

     Thank you for sharing my words today!!

Friendship, Poetry, Inspiration

Welcome! Thanks for stopping by today!

     I have been inspired to write a poem about friendship today, thanks to a dear friend. I am very grateful for the friends I have. I am thankful for the support and encouragement that I received from them when I opted to start writing. My life is richer because of my friends. I have a feeling you could say the same. Friends enrich our lives in so many ways, don't they? Through ups and downs, they are there for us. And we are there for them. So, here's  my poem. Inspired by the greatness that is friendship.


Something winds its way among souls
a force both fragile and strong
It brings joy and deep, shining grace
to what seems like million mornings
and the peace of mind
born of a tender knowing;
it is a journey of still movements between hearts
and grows ever richer
ever deeper
with the involvement in the tears and dreams
of another;
our hearts are opened, our spirits expanded
by the expansive, encompassing love
of friendship.

Thanks for checking out my poem today.
Be well and stay inspired. Hug a friend today.

In the eyes of a true friend you will always see yourself.
