POETRY always sustains me!

Since my early  teens, I have written poetry.  Some of them are on published greeting cards. However the vast majority have been written as I have struggled to overcome adversity and live a productive life.   I wrote the following poem when I was "stuck" close to finishing my book.  I just didn't know how to end it.  No words or ideas came to mind.  That's when I wrote the following:

An artist's most intense work is done in silence
When nothing seems to be happening
Waiting, waiting, waiting
For some unknown, unspoken
Voice to have her say, to make her contribution
Sing her song of joy
Giving new life to the creative process
