What is it that inspires you to write a post or story?
Is it words spoken by someone else,
which cannot go unanswered?
So much easier to do by writing,
than by actually answering.
Is it a sense of duty?
The promise we would stick to a schedule,
that taps away inside our heads,
and does not allow us to ignore its demands.
Is it an emotion,
which has built up inside?
Happiness, sadness, grief or celebration,
which we feel compelled to share.
Is it a compulsion?
An addiction so great,
we cannot function,
unless we have written or published.
Is it all of the above?
Every day a different calling,
which leads us to our writing.
Or is it simply the joy of writing,
as it is for me today?
A rare moment left at home alone.
Sitting in blissful silence,
looking at the promise of a blank screen,
with no particular thoughts in mind.
Just sitting down smiling foolishly,
as I abandon all cares,
and enjoy whatever it is my fingers decide to write.
