Poem About A Writer

I have a friend who is a gifted & imaginative writer. She also is often a source of inspiration for me to write poetry, including the following…

She Writes From The Heart

Putting pen to paper she writes
Words flow from her creative mind
Imagination without limitation
Always, one of a kind.

From deep in her heart, filled with love
Her life experiences teach
With wisdom and inspiration
She shares advice but doesn’t preach.

A humble woman with courage
She’ll tell you to believe
She knows the best is yet to come
Her goals set to achieve.

I’m so grateful to call her friend
Yet sometimes my heart skips a beat
Her eyes and face, so beautiful
And precious soul, so sweet.

Poem of Love

I was inspired to pen this poem after reading a writing by a friend

In My Heart

Her eyes drew me in to a soul I found pure
Very precious and rare, of that I am sure

Not cut as a cookie
Her beauty unique
Both inner an outward
Distinctive and chic

A place in my heart very special to me
This spirit-warming love which will always be

Poem of Trees

With a love of hiking & the great outdoors, I was inspired by the beautiful words of a friend’s writing, “Trees Are The Poem The Earth Wrote To Heaven“, to create this poem:

Of roots and trunks and branches, too
And don’t forget each leaf
With bark that’s better than a bite
More sun is warm relief

Let’s not discount the rain
It’s most important, too
Each season brings real change
In sum, that’s how I grew

The sky above has quite a view
With colors close to ground
Each forest has so many trees
Go hike, and look around
