Grab a cup of tea or coffee (oh what the heck, get a danish too!) and sit a spell. You might want to grab your notebook and pen because you never know when you will be inspired to write down a quote, or jot down a poem of your own. Words are like that, they take you on a journey and the next thing you know you are breathing life into your own magical world of words.

The Music Began to Stir My Soul - #OctPoWriMo

Not every poem has to be a masterpiece. Short poems, long poems, poems in form or in free form, what really matters is getting your words on the page. I hope you are enjoying OctPoWriMo and playing with your words.

While I was pacing the floor

a car raced down the street

a leaf fell to the ground

a book was being published

a secret was being told

a mother had tears of joy

a plane landed safely

While I was pacing the floor

I realized I needed to dance

I cranked James Asher's, Send in the Drums

I closed my eyes and let my body move

I shook the energy up and out

the music began to stir my soul

I smiled with delight

and I danced until the words began to flow


Lots of fun events/workshops/retreats happening over at my main website/blog. If you are interested in writing workshops and retreats, check out, Wild Woman Writing Retreat.

  1. THis is enlightening !
    Loved the line
    "I smiled with delight
    and I danced until the words began to flow"

    Cheers to OCtPoWriMO!

  2. I tend to write some pretty dark stuff, but life does have happy moments, and you've captured one here. Well done!

  3. Music always soothes and cures. I particularly love "a secret is being told". Beautiful!

  4. Absolutely beautiful! Had to read it twice to enjoy it again. Loved the repetition of the first line halfway through signaling a turn in the poem.

  5. Lovely images... it is amazing what music can do to inspire our words, isn't it? I enjoyed taking this journey with you.

  6. Very nice, Morgan. Light, yes, but reminds us that while we're pacing and going nowhere, life is going on. So we better get in the flow. Thank you. xoA

  7. Beautiful. I loved how you wrote about all of the things happening outside of yourself.

  8. Twist and shout! Thank you for your encouragement in writing.

  9. I needed to read your first lines, especially after the words that came out today.

    And I enjoyed your poem, both parts for different reasons, but equally.
    I liked the idea that so many things happen while we're focused on our own life, that we may never know about. Beautiful things, sad things, LIFE things.

    And I love dancing, I find it liberating too. So of course I enjoyed the second part too!
    And that last line? It packed some punch!


Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
