I Need an Idea--By Lanette Kissel--United States

I Need an Idea                           

I need an idea.
Can you suggest a source,
So that I can plot
this next poem’s course?

I need an idea
so that I can begin…
There’s a new poetry contest
I’d so love to win.

I need inspiration
so that I can start
to write the words
that will come from my heart.

Now, it’s not so depressing
as it may seem.
I have my idea.
I found it in a dream.

  1. Lanette,
    A great poem about conquering writer's block.
    Your friend,
    David Fox

  2. Lovely little poem considering its about the lack of inspiration to write it came round to being nice verse.

  3. So true. Inspiration can be fickle. Enjoyed.
