About Writing

I received this poem by Judith Hurley Prosser this morning and I can so relate to it.  In my Travel TidBits writing, there are days when the words don't flow - and other times when they just tumble out.
Silence, listening, turning inwards, quiet morning hours - for me this is the environment when the words start to flow.


by Judith Hurley Prosser

Waiting on the word,
I realize...
It can't be forced.
It either comes,
Or it doesn't.
What's required
Is being open
And creating the space
For it to flow.
In the Silence
The word
Can be heard.
Be quiet,
