Awake From Dryness – poem

The grayness of a winter day

Creative juices dry

But streams of thought life flow again

When sun rays hit the sky


Wait winter hasn’t moved in yet

Why then should darkness loom

Believing seasons grey and cold

When fall is yet in bloom


When penning can become a care

Void words no soothing prize

Reflecting on the Savior’s pain

Our debt he paid, revives


Behold the inspiration of

A palette waiting near

To capture in a moment

Words that edify and cheer


Soak in the vibrant Autumn hues

Delight in Fall’s quick show

Then safely harbor all your thoughts

For now’s a time to grow


Awake from dryness capture it

And help someone abound

Your words can be a precious tone

To those who need a sound

    Poet to poet, strange as it seems I am inspired to write
    more in winter, especially around Christmas time.
    your poem seems to say you do not. poets see
    seasons differently don’t we? and that makes
    writing poetry so wonderful as we see with our
    hearts not just our eyes. evelyn Heinz, fulltime mother
