why do you write every day
another few stanzas?
a continuous stanza as I have
been inspired by george seferis
introduced to him by ana
my greek muse
the one who gave me the key
to enter the labyrinth of poetry
and prose.a labyrinth?
don’t look surprised. indeed.
every day you’ll write and every
day you fail/ at times more
at other times a bit less.
but if you wouldn’t fail you
wouldn’t write/ as if writing is
failure – see roth/ see rowling
see an army of others –
every day you await the magical
moment of inspiration
that’ll catapult you out of the
ordinary chit-chat/ the harbinger
of a lyrical garden with exotic
and strange fruit
you’ve never thought existed
that’s where you wanted to go
that’s where the treasures lie
you need to touch/ smell/ taste
and paint with your words.
that’s how you’ve always wanted
